The Federation of Voyager 1 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 326 million Voyager 1ians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Voyager 1ian economy, worth 3.77 trillion Light-years a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 11,555 Light-years, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, all recreational drugs are legal, cars are banned, and all industry is owned and run by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Voyager 1's national animal is the LGM, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Voyager 1 is ranked 128,591st in the world and 4th in Asrina for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 31.96 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
