Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Supreme Realm of Starrie is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Nameless with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.61 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, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Starrian economy, worth a remarkable 4,652 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 400,746 Bytecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Euthanasia is illegal, the internet has been placed under government control, anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket, and perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starrie's national animal is the Cuttlefish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Reality.

Starrie is ranked 32,484th in the world and 1st in Kallisto for Most Income Equality, scoring 59.98 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
