Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Starblaydia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Julius Starblayde with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 26.543 billion Starblaydi are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Law & Order, although Education, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jhanna. The average income tax rate is 3.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Starblaydi economy, worth a remarkable 3,770 trillion Starblaydi Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 142,046 Starblaydi Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, a government program is underway to revitalize Starblaydia's beaches, tax rises are attributed to divine will, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. Starblaydia's national animal is the White Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Fam'dai.

Starblaydia is ranked 172,882nd in the world and 82nd in Atlantian Oceania for Highest Drug Use, scoring 9.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
