The Poor Soul of Shooting Star is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.662 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 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Soda Sales.

The government seizes all major gold finds, guns are banned, hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, and major internet servers have acquired citizenship. 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 17th in Commonwealth of Liberty and 28,381st in the world for Largest Populations, with 3,662 Capita (millions).
