Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Supreme Realm of Starrie is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Great Nameless with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, vat-grown people, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.707 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nexum. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Starrian economy, worth a remarkable 3,872 trillion Bytecoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 361,682 Bytecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, loans are available for students from poor families, oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires, and the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starrie's national animal is the Cuttlefish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Reality.

Starrie is ranked 1,058th in the world and 1st in Kallisto for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 13,312.86 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
