The Supreme Realm of Starrie is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by vh with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.584 billion Starrieans 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nexum. The average income tax rate is 90%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Uranium Mining.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Starrie, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Starrie's national animal is the Darv, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Explodonism, and its currency is the Bit.

Starrie is ranked 19th in Kallisto and 13,350th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.712 Stalins.
