The United Federation of Terrans

Population12.348 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 renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.348 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, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bellatore. The average income tax rate is 94.0%.

The frighteningly efficient United Federation of Terransian economy, worth a remarkable 4,789 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 387,871 Rand, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor, the endangered saltwater humpback Grizzly is only seen in captivity programs, and the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights. 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 57,685th in the world and 1,352nd in Lazarus for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,966.6 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
