Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Supreme Realm of Starrie is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Great Nameless with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.019 billion Starrians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nexum. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Starrian economy, worth a remarkable 4,099 trillion Bytecoins 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an amazing 372,035 Bytecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The attempt to control the weather has ended in environmental disaster, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Starrians any less frightened. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starrie's national animal is the Cuttlefish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Reality.

Starrie is ranked 70,285th in the world and 1st in Kallisto for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,191.73 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
