The Galactic Socialist Union of United Engiresco is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Premier AvanciŠe Falactań with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.817 billion Galacticans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Earth. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Galactican economy, worth 220 trillion Galactic Credits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,429 Galactic Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Recent events have left citizens both shaken and stirred, corporations have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with, everyone apparently sends Premier AvanciŠe Falactań hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, and children playing with walkie-talkies are told to 'get a job'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Engiresco's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is State Atheism.

United Engiresco is ranked 203,187th in the world and 7,610th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6.32 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
