The town of Vulcan, Alberta, Canada embraces the fact they share a name with the home world of Star Trek’s Mr. Spock.
Recently, the city council voted to amend the budget for an upgrade to ceremonial jackets often worn by the mayor and the six town councilors.  These ceremonial jackets are those of the United Federation of Planets, the government organization that sent Mr. Spock, Captain Kirk, and the rest of the crew on the starship Enterprise on their space exploration.

Each jacket will cost about $620, $4,340 in total.
