The Republic of StarWithACircleia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Leader McLeaderface with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.063 billion StarWithACircleians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 52.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse StarWithACircleian economy, worth 117 trillion Excuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,745 Excuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, and the Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire. Crime is totally unknown. StarWithACircleia's national animal is the Star with a circle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

StarWithACircleia is ranked 22,988th in the world and 1,290th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,770.28 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
