Rigels Light

Population4.839 billion


AnimalSnow Leopard

The Inlustris of Rigels Light is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Andromeda with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The compassionate population of 4.839 billion Rigelians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alnilam. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rigelian economy, worth 537 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,982 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', the latest political memes depict Andromeda as an overly-choreographed robot, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rigels Light's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rigels Light is ranked 155,921st in the world and 5,769th in Osiris for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -11.58 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
