The Terran Empire of Hoshi Sato is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Hoshi Sato with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, strictly enforced bedtime, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.615 billion Terrans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Earth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hoshi Satoan economy, worth a remarkable 7,148 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 346,743 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,808,370 per year while the poor average 9,545, a ratio of 294 to 1.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", war criminals are given full state funerals, Eckie-Ecola has declared that their soda poop is The Real Thing, and the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Hoshi Sato's national animal is the Runaway Slave, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hoshi Sato.

Hoshi Sato is ranked 203,652nd in the world and 3rd in Alpha Quadrant for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.51 Crimes Per Hour.
