The Corporate Dictatorship of Stuclica is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Stu with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 271 million, 262 million of whom are zombies, Stuclicans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stuclow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining.

The government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and procrastination is a national sport. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stuclica's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Stuclo.

Stuclica is ranked 20th in Europeia and 2,523rd in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 8 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.

Stuclica is currently considering its options.
