The Celestial Mandate of The Star Enpire is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Enperor Pier II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.698 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 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Starnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,519 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 103,364 pies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

You're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, and translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates. 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 16,255th in the world and 26th in Refugia for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 19,598.72 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
