The Intergalactic Stock Exchange is Earth's foremost business place and also used by a lot of alien races and robots. The stockbrokers are mostly robots specially adapted for the purpose, with multiple arms and so on. Among its personnel is Jor-El, Master of Scheduling, a kind of head-in-jar making public announcements via holographic projection.
- The space station is clearly a spoof of the station seen in 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Jor-El has its origins in the 1978 Superman movie, where a similar entity could be seen on Krypton.
- The message "Please help avoid stock market crashes, drive safely." can be seen scrolling around the ticker.
- The ISE's top is on to Ereğli,Turkey and bottom of the ISE on to Cairo,Egypt.
