The Continuing Adventures of The Starship Command is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Admiral Chelsea Leach with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.111 billion spacemen hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Supreme Headquarters Allied Forces Space. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Upian economy, worth a remarkable 1,612 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,291 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The road to capitalism has proved an epic drama of adventure and exploration, birth rates have hit an all-time low, games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime is totally unknown. The Starship Command's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Starship Command is ranked 171,764th in the world and 7th in The Vast for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.18 Crimes Per Hour.
