OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Stragalestranspets is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lorien with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.507 billion Stragalestranspetsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Defence and the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaia's Bay. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Organ donation is compulsory, birth rates have hit an all-time low, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stragalestranspets's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Me.

Stragalestranspets is ranked 8th in Wysteria and 132nd in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 17 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
