The United Federation of Planets is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 20.377 billion Planetsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Planetsian economy, worth 328 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 16,116 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending is on the increase, organ donation rates have hit a new low, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Planets's national animal is the selat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Planets is ranked 148,699th in the world and 2nd in The United Federation of Planets for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 622.87 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
