The Kings are Terrible at Hockey of Starman Deluxe is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by General Manager Rob Blake with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, complete lack of public education, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.919 billion Hockey Players are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Healthcare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.4%.

The all-consuming Starman Deluxean economy, worth an astonishing 13,482 trillion Hockey Pucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 422,397 Hockey Pucks, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Package deals offer tourists the chance to visit the frozen remains of the previous tour group, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, bars are packed at all hours, and aggressive promotion of global warming puts polar bears on thin ice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Starman Deluxe's national animal is the Foppys and Penguins, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Starman Deluxe is ranked 2,967th in the world and 1st in Hyrule for Most Corrupt Governments, with 196.55 Kickbacks Per Hour.
