The Poor Soul of Shooting Star is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working population of 4.256 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 Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Secret Base. The average income tax rate is 86.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Shooting Starian economy, worth 898 trillion Seashells a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 211,013 Seashells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Euthanasia is legal, unemployment is through the roof after the government enacted living wage laws, laws are littered with references to cheese, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'Wispdogs' dominate wildlife preserves. 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 Raiderism.

Shooting Star is ranked 98th in Commonwealth of Liberty and 75,031st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.177 Stalins.
