The United Federation of Terrans

Population16.006 billion

LeaderGeneral Vance


The Statocracy of The United Federation of Terrans is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Vance with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.006 billion Terrans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bellatore. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.1%.

The frighteningly efficient United Federation of Terransian economy, worth a remarkable 6,298 trillion Rand 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 393,492 Rand, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

New pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, the doctor has cold hands, school cafeterias serve nothing but protein powder and vitamin supplements, and when it comes to real men it takes one to know one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Federation of Terrans's national animal is the Grizzly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is None.

The United Federation of Terrans is ranked 3,780th in the world and 191st in Balder for Lowest Crime Rates, with 123.85 law-abiding acts per hour.
