The Empire of Nation of stars is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 236 million Nation of starsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The thriving Nation of starsian economy, worth 21.4 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 90,731 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Environmental officials dismiss uncontrolled wildfires burning down major cities as nature taking its course, people who have lived their entire lives in Nation of stars are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, just as students finish their homework it's time for school, and political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. Nation of stars's national animal is the Emu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Nation of stars is ranked 30,267th in the world and 1,454th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,251.21 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
