The Haderanian Polity of Star City is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.129 billion Strellans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Star City. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, much of Star City's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown. Star City's national animal is the Utahraptor, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Proletarian Credit.
