The Oppressed Peoples of The Gilded Star is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.289 billion citizens are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving a citizen economy, worth 514 trillion citizens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 156,370 citizens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Gossip magazines have been replaced by mask catalogs, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, every worker receives exactly the same pay regardless of productivity, and wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Gilded Star's national animal is the citizen, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
