The Nation of ForeStarnya is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 13.555 billion ForeStarnyans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ForeStarnya City. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient ForeStarnyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,641 trillion lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,093 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and government officials are held to the highest standard of morality. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ForeStarnya's national animal is the unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
