The Inlustris of Rigels Light is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andromeda with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 4.513 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 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Rigelian economy, worth 503 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 111,458 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.
