The Honogradian Imperial Conques of 1000 Stars is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Peter the Liberal King with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, vat-grown people, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.301 billion Starsians 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honorgrad City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.0%.

The frighteningly efficient 1000 Starsian economy, worth 607 trillion Gradcoin Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 141,248 Gradcoin Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Love is in the air, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, the letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together, and many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 1000 Stars's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Imperatorism.

1000 Stars is ranked 7,250th in the world and 3rd in Zelandia for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 10,923.22 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
