The Protectorate of Starblaydia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Julius Starblayde with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.821 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Education and Defence are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jhanna. The average income tax rate is 54%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Tourism and Furniture Restoration.

Retired racing White Lions are served truffles for breakfast, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starblaydia's national animal is the White Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is the Fam'dai, and its currency is the Starblaydi Credit.

Starblaydia is ranked 40th in Atlantian Oceania and 36,757th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 8 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
