The Poor Soul of Shooting Star is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 4.015 billion Shooting Starians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, 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 Soda Sales.

Women who display their ankles are shunned by society, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, the government has the power to seize property at will, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. 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 3rd in Commonwealth of Liberty and 1,753rd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 11 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
