The Utopian Republic of Star United States is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Head Council with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, hatred of cheese, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, devout population of 6.731 billion Starians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Star. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Star United Statesian economy, worth 481 trillion Starlites a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,480 Starlites, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, and the government has an "easy come, easy go" policy on youth crime. 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, and its national religion is Christanity.
