The Empire of Sturisoma is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Kreu Patrembur with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.328 billion Sturisomen 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shenjtė Kodėr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Book Publishing.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, nudity is frowned upon, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Sturisoma's border. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sturisoma's national animal is the lightning bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Sturisoman Orthodox Church, and its currency is the koob.

Sturisoma is ranked 5th in Brochis and 6,814th in the world for Best Weather, with 149 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
