Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Supreme Realm of Starrie is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Great Nameless with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.622 billion Starrians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nexum. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Starrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,586 trillion Bytecoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,147 Bytecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border, and children spout "He who dreams is a sparrow flitting between two seas." involuntarily throughout the day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starrie's national animal is the Cuttlefish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Reality.

Starrie is ranked 41st in Kallisto and 125,479th in the world for Best Weather, with -432 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
