The Inlustris of Rigels Light is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Andromeda with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.196 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, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda. 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 all-consuming Rigelian economy, worth 576 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 110,894 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons. 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.
