USS Entente

Population1.298 billion

CapitalThe Bridge


The Starship of USS Entente is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 1.298 billion Starfleet Officers 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 medium-sized, liberal, 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 34.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Starfleet Officer economy, worth 36.4 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 28,033 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and USS Entente has designated The Bridge as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. USS Entente's national animal is the Tribble.

USS Entente is ranked 158,754th in the world and 7th in Terra Luna for Most Pro-Market, scoring 20 on the Rand Index.
