The Federation of The Pleiads is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.028 billion Pleiadsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Alma. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pleiadsian economy, worth 77.9 trillion Royals a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,794 Royals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, the nationalized auto industry is adept at making durable little cars nobody wants to drive, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Pleiads's national animal is the Scylla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Pleiads is ranked 145,213th in the world and 5,985th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 671.5 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
