Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Supreme Realm of Starrie is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Nameless with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, ban on automobiles, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.934 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nexum. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Starrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,381 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 266,554 Bytecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, chess hooliganism is on the rise after the banning of organised sports, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 39th in Kallisto and 26,048th in the world for Safest, scoring 330.268 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
