The Poor Soul of Shooting Star is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.872 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 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.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, abattoirs are running at full capacity in response to skyrocketing demand, young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness', and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. 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 21st in Commonwealth of Liberty and 6,571st in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 167 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
