The Lunar Alliance of Starlightia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lumanaré Maxima with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.628 billion Starlightians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starlight. The average income tax rate is 77%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, the government funds large training centres to turn Starry Winged Eagles into functioning members of society, religious education is a new government priority, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Starlightia's radio stations. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starlightia's national animal is the Starry Winged Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Astronomy, and its currency is the Stardust Pouch.
