The Socialisticae PlanetŠ of StarGaiz is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Tsezar Stalin with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.974 billion Operariuses are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscoviae. The average income tax rate is 93.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Operarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,455 trillion Stellas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 292,706 Stellas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and top-shelf magazines feature risqué centrefold spreads of ladies' wrists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. StarGaiz's national animal is the Pumilio PlanetŠ, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Комитет комиссаров.

StarGaiz is ranked 3,969th in the world and 9th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Poor Incomes, with 158,893.27 Standard Monetary Units.
