Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Poor Soul of Shooting Star is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.644 billion 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Secret Base. The average income tax rate is 88.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Shooting Starian economy, worth 992 trillion Seashells a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 213,609 Seashells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, and the government pours millions of Seashells into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is Having Fun.

Shooting Star is ranked 21st in Commonwealth of Liberty and 7,590th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
