Starlight Glimmer 213

Population3.722 billion


The Queendom of Starlight Glimmer 213 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, zero percent divorce rate, and strictly enforced bedtime. The devout population of 3.722 billion Starlight Glimmer 213ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 37.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Starlight Glimmer 213ian economy, worth 177 trillion bits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,648 bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, and cities in Starlight Glimmer 213 declare independence based on interpretation of the historic meaning of cave paintings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starlight Glimmer 213's national animal is the pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Starlight Glimmer 213 is ranked 247,765th in the world and 3,581st in Artificial Solar System for Most Patriotic, with 1.22 flags saluted per person per day.
