The Federation of Socialist Territories is a tiny, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 14 million Terrisians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Terrisian economy, worth 292 billion Labor Vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 20,900 Labor Vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, sex changes are routinely performed at Socialist Territories's hospitals, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Territories's national animal is the Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist Territories is ranked 148,415th in the world and 78th in Wintercrest for Highest Economic Output, with 293 billion Standard Monetary Units.
