Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Serene City State of Straethearn is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Dude with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.756 billion Straethearnese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Straethearn. The average income tax rate is 33.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Straethearnen economy, worth 537 trillion rugs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,532 rugs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing", any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, and oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Straethearn's national animal is the titan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Straethearn is ranked 89,763rd in the world and 226th in Wintreath for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,124.94 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
