Rigels Light

The Inlustris of Rigels Light is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Andromeda with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 3.996 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 powerhouse Rigelian economy, worth 438 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 109,752 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, and the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage'. 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 70,423rd in the world and 2,267th in Osiris for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,228.12 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
