The Federation of The United Earth Planet is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kenneth Wescott with a fair hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.439 billion Earthlings love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Francisco. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Terran economy, worth 133 trillion Federation Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 54,664 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, shell-shocked refugees are made to provide Immigration with lively renditions of 'Dancing Queen', puppies given out free in marketing promotions are often tossed straight into the trash, and airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Earth Planet's national animal is the Humpback Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Starfleet.

The United Earth Planet is ranked 216,035th in the world and 193rd in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Rudest Citizens, with 8.07 Insults Per Minute.
