The Protectorate of Starblaydia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Julius Starblayde with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 25.126 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, with Education, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jhanna. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Starblaydi economy, worth a remarkable 3,854 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, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,392 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 and its national religion is the Fam'dai.
