The Republic of Star United States is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by President Chris with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 5.662 billion Starians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Star. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Star United States's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Christanity, and its currency is the Starlite.

Star United States is ranked 3rd in Esportiva and 1,911th in the world for Best Weather, with 318 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
