Summary :

By 2075, the Galactic Commission has realized that a separate but subordinate body of administrators is needed to run the now incredibly complex warp and weft of modern space travel, and so they form the Galactic Administrative Service.

An indefinite time later, space travel as a practical past time and way of life has nearly ground to a halt as amazing ineptitude by insanely beaurocratic administrators piles impossible amounts of paperwork and licensing fees on ship owners and pilots.

When the plague comes, this state of affairs nearly destroys the human race, as recorded in this highly entertaining tale by Murry Leinster.
