The Federation of Earth and Vulcan is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 340 million Earth and Vulcanians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.8%.

The very strong Earth and Vulcanian economy, worth 22.4 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 65,907 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 213,393 per year while the poor average 15,370, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Orange is the new black for judicial robes, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, only persecuted professionals need apply, and bins outnumber trees in city parks. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Earth and Vulcan's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Earth and Vulcan is ranked 80,975th in the world and 2nd in The Unknown Abyss for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51.62 Whatever.
