The United States of Earth Federation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by ATLAS Artificial Intelligence with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.193 billion Terrans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Terran economy, worth an astonishing 11,132 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 647,515 Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,061,133 per year while the poor average 43,668, a ratio of 93.0 to 1.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing, there's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy", and government solves problems by tossing money at the nearest geek. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Earth Federation's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Earth Federation is ranked 38th in the world and 1st in 10000 Islands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 61,823.79 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
