The Colony of Glasstar is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 483 million Glasstarians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 22.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Glasstarian economy, worth 27.0 trillion stars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. Average income is 55,907 stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, traumatized ex-ambassadors seek treatment for their "desk dissociation", and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Glasstar's national animal is the horned owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Glasstar is ranked 91,165th in the world and 226th in Enadia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,116.34 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
