Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Supreme Realm of Starrie is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Great Nameless with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.137 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 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Starrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,498 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 209,936 Bytecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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 1st in Kallisto and 3,414th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 7 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
