The United Federation of Interstellar Planets is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Robert McKinley with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.132 billion Federals enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Angeles. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Federal economy, worth a remarkable 3,986 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 141,696 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumour has it President Robert McKinley needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. Crime is totally unknown. Interstellar Planets's national animal is the Tiberian bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Interstellar Planets is ranked 194,836th in the world and 27th in The Milky Way Galaxy for Most Pro-Market, scoring -89.67 on the Rand Index.
