The 14 Stars

Population6.595 billion

LeaderAlexander Stark


The Widely Banned Federation of The 14 Stars is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Alexander Stark with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate population of 6.595 billion Starsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polestar-City. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse 14 Starsian economy, worth 621 trillion Bells a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,212 Bells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Patriots insist that size does matter, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, and nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The 14 Stars's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

The 14 Stars is ranked 231,793rd in the world and 286th in The Free Nations Region for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -11 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
