The Protectorate of Starblaydia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Korra Starblayde with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 30.141 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, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Education, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 4,556 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 Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 151,159 Starblaydi Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

State-sanctioned torture is okay so long as there's no icky blood, spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of Starblaydia, for 25 Starblaydi Credits tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 154,881st in the world and 173rd in Atlantian Oceania for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 15.35 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
