The Empire of Stragalestranspets is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lorien with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.184 billion Stragalestranspetsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaia's Bay. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.
The large but stagnant Stragalestranspetsian economy, worth 344 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 20,056 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime is totally unknown. Stragalestranspets's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
