The Republic of Starblazer is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Kais Shova with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.003 billion Blazerians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of September City. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Starblazerian economy, worth 306 trillion Erins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,139 Erins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

New pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, robosexual marriages are increasingly common, and public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starblazer's national animal is the Three-banded Armadillo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Starblazer is ranked 161,418th in the world and 5,192nd in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.35 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
