The perfect place for life, the third planet from the sun and home planet of humans, animals and plants as well as robots. In spite of being conquered several times by various aliens, by the 31st century, humans are again the dominant life form on Earth. Earth's government is a planet-wide democracy that is clearly modeled after (if not directly descended from) America's government of today. Even the flag, Old Freebie, is similar to the American flag. The government is largely run by clones, though in 3000, Earthicans elected Richard Nixon's head President of Earth. Although frequently invaded by the Omicronians and others, Earth seems to be a military power to be reckoned with.
Thanks to the colonizing and contact of dozens if not hundreds of other planets (including Mars, Neptune, Pluto and many others from across the galaxy and universe), human population by the year 3000 is not known. In terms of wealth, Mom is the richest person on the planet, Zapp Brannigan is responsible for protecting the world from various alien invasions as well as expanding Earth's empire.
One of the most important places in the entire universe, by the 31st century, Earth is a huge glowing utopia (sort of) the planet is at the height of existence, major technological advancements have been achieved by humanity, the wheel is obsolete and hovercars are prominent, sentient robots possibly have a higher population than humans themselves and space travel has excelled to the point of ships being space ships being able to travel many thousands of times the traditional speed of light, making journey's to other galaxies take but a few hours. Many people who lived in the 20th and 21st are preserved in jars albeit only their heads.
Many species of aliens have migrated to Earth and live in peace with the life forms already on Earth, the Decapodians specifically came to Earth in the 23rd century. Anchovies and cow have become extinct. Mutants have since developed in the sewers especially in New New York, the vermin and confined to the sewers.
Earth gets invaded by aliens multiple times a week. However, almost all attempts to take over the planet have bee unsucessful.
