The Interstellar Confederation of The Terran Communities is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 568 million Terrans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Terran economy, worth 63.9 trillion Yeurollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,531 Yeurollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, conspiracy theorists allege New Jerusalem's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Terran Communities's national animal is the Aquila, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Terran Communities is ranked 74,157th in the world and 1st in Sector 1 for Most Influential, scoring 160 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
