Rigels Light

Population8.6 billion


AnimalSnow Leopard

The Inlustris of Rigels Light is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Andromeda with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 8.6 billion Rigelians 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 enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alnilam. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Rigelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,114 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,587 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

National stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, the new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", and treason is relative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rigels Light's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rigels Light is ranked 5,377th in the world and 262nd in Osiris for Safest, scoring 127.11 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
