The Free Land of Starsight is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its national health service, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 539 million Starseers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heavensblaze. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Starsighted economy, worth 51.4 trillion starcrowns a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,277 starcrowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, robosexual marriages are increasingly common, and the nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starsight's national animal is the thanestork, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Starsight is ranked 30,777th in the world and 1,065th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,555.38 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
