The Kingdom of Starlight Blade is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Benevolent Dictator with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate population of 13.944 billion Starlight Bladeans 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 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 99.7%.

The strong Starlight Bladean economy, worth a remarkable 2,169 trillion Bits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,608 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. 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 2,424th in the world and 108th in Lazarus for Most Cultured, scoring 207 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
