Personally I'm going to go with Serenity-verse. Think about it - the Alliance is this incredibly cultured federation, with great health care, religious tolerance, multi-racial harmony and scientific inquiry.
Of course, if you get tired of all that homogenous and vaguely facistic central government, you can bunk off to the non-alligned worlds and either live a simple life as a farmer, or sign up to join a smuggler's crew like Mal Reynold's.
Then again, there's Reavers. Always make sure you have a basement vault that is secure.
