Starlight Glimmer 177

Population1.711 billion


The Queendom of Starlight Glimmer 177 is a massive, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.711 billion Starlight Glimmer 177ians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 42.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Starlight Glimmer 177ian economy, worth 70.2 trillion bits a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,001 bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, Starlight Glimmer 177 is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starlight Glimmer 177's national animal is the pony, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Starlight Glimmer 177 is ranked 167,281st in the world and 3,869th in Artificial Solar System for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.14 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
