The Galactic Federal Republic of The Earth Systems Alliance is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dominic Woodward with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.241 billion Humans 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 medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Terran economy, worth 329 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 146,944 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Much of The Earth Systems Alliance's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, religious citizens are closely monitored for signs of self-harm, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Earth Systems Alliance's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Earth Systems Alliance is ranked 151,836th in the world and 5,895th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -70.47 on the Hayek Index.
