The Oppressed Peoples of The Gilded Star is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 455 million citizens 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 73.3%.

The strong a citizen economy, worth 38.0 trillion citizens 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. 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 83,589 citizens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Prison libraries are being replaced with interrogation chambers, Leader's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, and pocket dialling is a criminal offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Gilded Star's national animal is the citizen, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Gilded Star is ranked 2,215th in the world and 1st in Pacifica for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 11,680.95 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
