The Kings are Terrible at Hockey of Starman Deluxe is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by General Manager Rob Blake with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 34.529 billion Hockey Players are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Healthcare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.4%.

The all-consuming Starman Deluxean economy, worth an astonishing 14,519 trillion Hockey Pucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 420,509 Hockey Pucks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,485,849 per year while the poor average 86,008, a ratio of 17.3 to 1.

Package deals offer tourists the chance to visit the frozen remains of the previous tour group, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, bars are packed at all hours, and aggressive promotion of global warming puts polar bears on thin ice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Starman Deluxe's national animal is the Foppys and Penguins, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Starman Deluxe is ranked 1,339th in the world and 2nd in Hyrule for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 15,562.85 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
