Starlight Glimmer 218

Population1.723 billion


The Queendom of Starlight Glimmer 218 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 1.723 billion Starlight Glimmer 218ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 32.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,895 bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Starlight Glimmer 218's national animal is the pony, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
