Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Sturisoma is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Kreu Patrembur with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.295 billion Sturisomen 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.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shenjtė Kodėr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Sturisoman economy, worth 826 trillion koobs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,254 koobs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 479,833 per year while the poor average 25,467, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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, and its national religion is Sturisoman Orthodox Church.

Sturisoma is ranked 24th in Brochis and 110,822nd in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -159 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
