Starlight Glimmer 244

Population3.872 billion


The Queendom of Starlight Glimmer 244 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.872 billion Starlight Glimmer 244ians 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, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.7%.

The large but inefficient Starlight Glimmer 244ian economy, worth 170 trillion bits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,154 bits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 139,557 per year while the poor average 10,666, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

The military struggles with recruitment, police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, and years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starlight Glimmer 244's national animal is the pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Starlight Glimmer 244 is ranked 179,290th in the world and 2,794th in Artificial Solar System for Smartest Citizens, with 23.18 quips per hour.
