Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Sturisoma is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Kreu Patrembur with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.457 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, pro-business, 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 Shenjt Kodr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sturisoman economy, worth 858 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 132,934 koobs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 538,988 per year while the poor average 21,825, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, and prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects. 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 2nd in Brochis and 6,388th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 381 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
