Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Interstellar Empire of UnitedTerran is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Imperator Shran Zhong-shan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.609 billion Terrans 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperium. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Terran economy, worth 667 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 144,835 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, the Terran Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. UnitedTerran's national animal is the Double-Headed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

UnitedTerran is ranked 5,352nd in the world and 1st in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
