The Ten Tribes of Capella IV is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Eleen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.469 billion Capellans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Public Transport, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Settlement. The average income tax rate is 56.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Capellan economy, worth 39.5 trillion Federation Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 26,906 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, and landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Capella IV's national animal is the Power-Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Capella IV is ranked 205,536th in the world and 186th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Rudest Citizens, with 14.14 Insults Per Minute.
