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 complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 23.642 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jhanna. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Starblaydi economy, worth a remarkable 3,618 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 153,051 Starblaydi Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, a government program is underway to revitalize Starblaydia's beaches, and tax rises are attributed to divine will. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. Starblaydia's national animal is the White Lion and its national religion is the Fam'dai.

Starblaydia is ranked 55th in Atlantian Oceania and 51,195th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 70 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
