The Romantic Assembly of The Star Enpire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Enperor Pier II with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 16.691 billion Starnians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redmont. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Starnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,882 trillion pies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,811 pies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, the latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, and visions of giant pink bluefin tuna are a common side effect after Starnians eat their meals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Star Enpire's national animal is the bluefin tuna, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Holy Church of Spode.

The Star Enpire is ranked 2,653rd in the world and 4th in Refugia for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 87 valid endorsements.
