Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Starblaydia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Julius Starblayde with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 28.514 billion Starblaydi are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Law & Order, although Education, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jhanna. The average income tax rate is 3.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Starblaydi economy, worth a remarkable 4,065 trillion Starblaydi Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 142,569 Starblaydi Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, Julius Starblayde's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Starblaydia's national animal is the White Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Fam'dai.

Starblaydia is ranked 25,716th in the world and 9th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Avoided, scoring 169.12 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
