The Experimental Technocracy of The University Project is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by slightly evil bearded man with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 29.921 billion Earthlings are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Terran economy, worth a remarkable 8,319 trillion oral favors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Information Technology and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 278,050 oral favors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Slightly evil bearded man affectionately nicknames supporters by number, a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and the people's love for slightly evil bearded man is little more than self-preservation. Crime is totally unknown. The University Project's national animal is the well-endowed magpie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The University Project is ranked 44th in the world and 3rd in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 440 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
