The Empire of Great Morningstar is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lord Alexander Sirgsen with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.039 billion Morningstarians 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 Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blancblack. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Morningstarian economy, worth 241 trillion Scarms a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,550 Scarms, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, women who miscarry have their death-masks displayed in the Wax Museum's "Sociopaths and Serial Killers Exhibit", psychological disorders are a taboo subject, and anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Morningstar's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Great Morningstar is ranked 160,886th in the world and 560th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 10.75 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
