The Republic of The Republic of The Intergalactic Republic of Space is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Cosmic Officer Number Fifty-Seven with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and frequent executions. The compassionate population of 4.783 billion The Intergalactic Republic of Spaceans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the observable universe. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Intergalactic Republic of Spacean economy, worth 243 trillion Space Bars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,995 Space Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, many The Intergalactic Republic of Spaceans struggle to find outlets for their pent-up competitive juices, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, and the state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Intergalactic Republic of Space's national animal is the Seemingly Intangible Creature of Empty, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a really cool religion.

The Intergalactic Republic of Space is ranked 149,859th in the world and 62nd in SPACE for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
