The Inlustris of Rigels Light is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Andromeda with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 8.834 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alnilam. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Rigelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,142 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 129,380 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
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.
