The Constitutional Monarchy of UNITED STAR ASSOCIATION is a huge, safe nation, notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 766 million Loyals of UNITED STAR ASSOCIATION have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 30.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient SPARK economy, worth 24.9 trillion SPARK Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,479 SPARK Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation was recently voted as the most stylish in UNITED STAR ASSOCIATION, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and all the playground's a stage for SPARK schoolchildren. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. UNITED STAR ASSOCIATION's national animal is the Rockstar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

UNITED STAR ASSOCIATION is ranked 106,421st in the world and 3rd in UNITED STAR ASSOCIATION for Nicest Citizens, with 13 average smiles per day.
