Starlight Glimmer 175

Population1.685 billion


The Queendom of Starlight Glimmer 175 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed population of 1.685 billion Starlight Glimmer 175ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.7%.

The Starlight Glimmer 175ian economy, worth 82.8 trillion bits 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 a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Gambling, Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. 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 49,134 bits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 170,906 per year while the poor average 10,294, a ratio of 16.6 to 1.

Smoking is banned in public areas, the Starlight Glimmer 175ian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, and immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites. Crime is moderate. Starlight Glimmer 175's national animal is the pony.

Starlight Glimmer 175 is ranked 32,841st in the world and 297th in Artificial Solar System for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 16.6 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
