The Kingdom of Starlight Blade is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Benevolent Dictator with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate population of 15.488 billion Starlight Bladeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of StarSpark City. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The very strong Starlight Bladean economy, worth a remarkable 2,731 trillion Bits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,361 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, funeral mourners ridesharing with the deceased are encouraged to sit on the coffin to save room, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starlight Blade's national animal is the Alicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Starlight Blade is ranked 118,152nd in the world and 4,039th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.94 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
