The Glorious Nation of Stigtheawesome is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Eternal Leader and President Stig with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.971 billion are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Stigtopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Stigtheawesome's national animal is the Squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Stighilism, and its currency is the Conventionsthaler.

Stigtheawesome is ranked 1st in Dictators United and 402nd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 21 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
