The Federation of Sentient Peoples is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Imperial President with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.484 billion Sentient Peoplesians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Griffin. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Sentient Peoplesian economy, worth an astonishing 13,672 trillion FedCreds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 364,756 FedCreds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,375,326 per year while the poor average 67,403, a ratio of 20.4 to 1.

There's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy", old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, and scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Sentient Peoples's national animal is the Black Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Sentient Peoples is ranked 30,914th in the world and 1st in Dor Lomin for Highest Drug Use, scoring 100.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
