Compared to other timelines, the “EagleVerse” timeline still has a monetary system. This currency is referred to as the United Earth Dollar (UED). It is a purely digital currency due to the advancement of technology and improved secure communication systems.
The UED is used to purchase things that would fall into the category of wants or desires. Primary services, such as health and utilities, are placed under the category of needs and are supplied by the United Earth Government.
Starfleet personnel are given a monthly salary for their service to United Earth. This salary ranges based on position, rank, and years of service.
