The Dominion of United Earth Directorates is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 8.893 billion United Earth Directoratesians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auir. The average income tax rate is 26.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient United Earth Directoratesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,369 trillion Bits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 266,418 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. United Earth Directorates's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

United Earth Directorates is ranked 2,821st in the world and 3rd in Unknown for Highest Average Incomes, with 266,418.99 Standard Monetary Units.
