Fictional Universe Taxonomy Research
Sunrise in orbit


The Fictional Universe Taxonomy Research project collects statistics about civilizations in science fiction universes.

How many planets do they have? How big is their fleet? Can they do time travel? What is their technological level, their live expectancy, their wealth distribution?

Our mission is to characterize the fictional universes we love by numbers and make them comparable.

These are the universes.

...more to come.
Talk about universes and how to measure stuff. Request new measurements and comparisons. Is there any universe still missing?

This is how we gauge universes, civiliztions and factions.

Some have many planets or ring worlds, others might be measured by their progress to higher spheres of existance.

This is not a competition, though.
