The Commonwealth of Stromia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Tyr Backstrom with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.739 billion Stromians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
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 Linkoping. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Stromian economy, worth a remarkable 2,741 trillion Quints a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 154,547 Quints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, workers have seized control of the economy, the government is buying children's books by the thousands, and Stromia has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stromia's national animal is the lynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Annunakiism.
