The Empire Immaterial of Starkindler is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by HM Eva Evenstar with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.318 billion Clanks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Omicron-Theta VII. The average income tax rate is 35.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Clank economy, worth a remarkable 1,985 trillion Nationstates Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 238,677 Nationstates Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, the horniness of the great-horned Eagle is considered a national priority, and genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starkindler's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Starkindler is ranked 298,564th in the world and 10,261st in Lazarus for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -21.88 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
