The 5-Year Mission of United StarShip Enterprise is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Captain James T Kirk with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 21.115 billion United StarShip Enterpriseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Bridge. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant United StarShip Enterprisean economy, worth 99.5 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 4,714 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Tribble, and Captain James T Kirk has just been declared ruler of United StarShip Enterprise in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United StarShip Enterprise's national animal is the Tribble, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United StarShip Enterprise is ranked 214,840th in the world and 4th in The United Federation of Planets for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 217.96 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
