The Interstellar Confederation of The Terran Communities is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Council of Tellus with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.836 billion 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 enormous, 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 Fonquois Zovēt. The average income tax rate is 85.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Terran economy, worth 319 trillion Yeurollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,483 Yeurollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Ticket touts are blamed for the downfall of communism, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, and teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Terran Communities's national animal is the Butterfly, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Terran Communities is ranked 6,418th in the world and 1st in Sector 1 for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 4,031.81 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
