The Republic of The Battlestar Pegasus BS-62 is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 600 million Colonials enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caprica City. The average income tax rate is 46.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Battlestar Pegasus BS-62ian economy, worth 77.7 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 129,506 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

It is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, the official Battlestar Pegasus BS-62ian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, and getting a blood transfusion from a Colonial entitles a foreigner to citizenship. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Battlestar Pegasus BS-62's national animal is the Blue Stardust Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Battlestar Pegasus BS-62 is ranked 108,364th in the world and 17th in Goddess White for Most Influential, scoring 219 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
