The Armed Republic of The Youngling Earth is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Onicea Franzosa Glaucopide with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 6.757 billion Earthians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Earth's Heart. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Earthian economy, worth 80.0 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 11,845 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Earth's Heart, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Youngling Earth's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Equitaoism.

The Youngling Earth is ranked 268,341st in the world and 14th in Dodeca for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.02 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
