Rigels Light

Population5.582 billion


AnimalSnow Leopard

The Inlustris of Rigels Light is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Andromeda with an even hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.582 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alnilam. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rigelian economy, worth 616 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 110,494 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drones are unable to lift the weight of their accompanying paperwork, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', the government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, and under love's heavy burden Andromeda sinks lower in the political right's esteem. 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 108,760th in the world and 3,567th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 14.44 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
