The Unified Republics of Outer Solar System is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Alghren with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.992 billion Outer Solar Systemians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Titan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Outer Solar Systemian economy, worth 623 trillion Energy Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,931 Energy Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, politicians can't accept birthday presents from their own children, and the Outer Solar Systemian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Outer Solar System's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pagan-Animism.

Outer Solar System is ranked 7,137th in the world and 1st in Sol System CSP for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 13,833.69 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
