Admiral Archer

Population17.699 billion


The Planetary Federation of Admiral Archer is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 17.699 billion Crewmen are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.0%.

The strong a Crewman economy, worth 849 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 48,022 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Admiral Archer's national animal is the beagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Admiral Archer is ranked 178,830th in the world and 4th in The United Federation of Planets for Most Conservative, scoring 47.25 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
