Word of God has it that The Coalition holds a meeting every six hours. This means that something aproximate to the figures they give happen every six hours. So, every six hours, The People "Liberate" five species, The Cybermen convert 48 planets, and The Mind spread their cultural meddling to 40. Think about just how huge these factions have to be to give those figures every six freaking hours.
