The Federation of Utopia Planitia Research Center is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Admiral Drazman with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 6.135 billion Utopia Planitians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viking Landing. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Utopia Planitia Research Centerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,270 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 broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 207,097 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', and international war crimes are good for business and business is booming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Utopia Planitia Research Center's national animal is the Giant Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Prime Directive.

Utopia Planitia Research Center is ranked 17,835th in the world and 7th in Federation of Martian Colonies for Most Influential, scoring 2,227 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
