The Empire of The Republic of the Senate of the Trees is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Yoda with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.519 billion Traitors are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscant. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Republic of the Senate of the Treesian economy, worth 255 trillion Republic 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. 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 101,544 Republic Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has declared that monochrome cinema is the next big thing, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, The Republic of the Senate of the Trees has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, and foreign planes and migratory birds are shot down as spies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Republic of the Senate of the Trees's national animal is the Isopod, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Jediism.

The Republic of the Senate of the Trees is ranked 149,940th in the world and 8,170th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -54.2 on the Hayek Index.
