The Universal Windows Defender of The Earth Systems Alliance is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dominic Woodward with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.842 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 government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Terran economy, worth 558 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 145,482 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School football matches are usually five-a-side, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, and soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers. 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 195,415th in the world and 7,787th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.81 Crimes Per Hour.
