The Poor Soul of Shooting Star is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.14 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.

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.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, prime picnicking sites are being paved over in the name of progress, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. 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 134th in Commonwealth of Liberty and 101,510th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -101 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
