The Interstellar Empire of UnitedTerran is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Imperator Jansaan thShran I with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.275 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, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperium. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Terran economy, worth a remarkable 1,118 trillion Imperial Pound s a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,808 Imperial Pound s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's nuclear defence policy is to "turn the other cheek", political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, Imperator Jansaan thShran I's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Imperator Jansaan thShran I's wardrobe. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 5,068th in the world and 1st in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
