Default Scope and format of world data sheets in SF

I'm working on a procedure to generate world data sheets for my perennial SF setting, FLAT BLACK. I have procedures for the physical description of the world, the population and economic statistics, the spaceport &c. down pat. Before I move on to the characteristics of the government and society I want to make sure that I have everything covered at an appropriate level of detail.

So here's an example world information sheet. Only about half the entries were automatically generated; I'd like advice on the format, scope, and level of detail.

It needs a map.
It needs a gazetteer with brief entries on a dozen cities and other locations.
It needs a unit of currency, titles for the senior government officials.

Apart from that, what does it need?

Decay is inherent in all composite things.
Nod head. Get treat.
