The Nicest Nation of Stujenske is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the people with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.921 billion Stujenskeses are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 16.3%.
The strong Stujenskean economy, worth 259 trillion Zilks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 26,134 Zilks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.
Murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stujenske's national animal is the Orphan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
