The Sunken Treasure of Star Kingdom is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Celestine with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.62 billion Astrals hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starfish. The average income tax rate is 42.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astral economy, worth 473 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 130,906 Sand Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, they say that Astrals made a dessert and called it peace, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects. Crime is totally unknown. Star Kingdom's national animal is the Seahorse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Star Kingdom is ranked 10,627th in the world and 250th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cultured, scoring 106 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
