The 23 Stars

The Guardian Knight-Bulwark of The 23 Stars is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Booken with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, avowedly heterosexual populace, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.879 billion Starsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Griffin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Starsian economy, worth 282 trillion Wardenmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 150,543 Wardenmarks, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, and older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The 23 Stars's national animal is the griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

The 23 Stars is ranked 15,450th in the world and 2nd in Commonwealth Of United Kingdom for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 18.98 Bank.
