The Poor Soul of Shooting Star is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 599 million, all of whom are zombies, Shooting Starians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Secret Base. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Arms Manufacturing.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, mandatory daycare is provided by the government, and museums occasionally burn priceless artifacts in order to intimidate foreign curators. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shooting Star's national animal is the Wisp, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Raiderism, and its currency is the Seashell.

Shooting Star is ranked 5th in Commonwealth of Liberty and 2,676th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 17 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Shooting Star is currently considering its options.
