The Armed Republic of Starscrest is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 365 million Crestorians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cydonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.

The thriving Crestorian economy, worth 32.2 trillion Starbrights a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 88,255 Starbrights, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 322,051 per year while the poor average 17,172, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Nations that kill a Crestor can expect a strongly worded letter, Leader sports gold-plated grillz to promote the government's hard money policy, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Starscrest's national animal is the Fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Starscrest is ranked 65,641st in the world and 540th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 23.63 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
