The Magnificent Zoldiarch Empire of Bintangland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Bintang Starlord Feilhinder with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.041 billion Bintanglandians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dido. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bintanglandian economy, worth 693 trillion Star Dolarios a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 228,087 Star Dolarios, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, and distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bintangland's national animal is the Stag Beetle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zoldiarchism.

Bintangland is ranked 15,019th in the world and 804th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,272.12 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
