The Poor Soul of Shooting Star is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 2.55 billion 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 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Soda Sales.

Shooting Star's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, almost all of Shooting Star's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and euthanasia is legal. 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 328th in Balder and 8,985th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 129 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
