Union of Allied Planets

Population4.751 billion

The Federation of Union of Allied Planets is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.751 billion Alliance Citizens are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Allied economy, worth 540 trillion Alliance Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 113,782 Alliance Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 469,879 per year while the poor average 18,114, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, more and more people are signing up for the government party, withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union of Allied Planets's national animal is the turkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Union of Allied Planets is ranked 233,163rd in the world and 32nd in Union of Allied Planets for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -3.16 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
