The Dominion of Forbidden Planet is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 309 million Forbidden Planetians 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 relatively small, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altair Four. The average income tax rate is 10.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Forbidden Planetian economy, worth 19.3 trillion Universal Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 62,390 Universal Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

A handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, heartwarming sentiments are even hotter now, and polite commuters on the Altair Four Metro always let hurried workers off the train first. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Forbidden Planet's national animal is the Id Creature, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Forbidden Planet is ranked 138,847th in the world and 9th in Hollow Point for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 674.11 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
