OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Sturisoma is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Emperor Kreu Patrembur with an iron fist, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.217 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.

Women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security. 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 7th in Brochis and 7,979th in the world for Safest, scoring 391.2 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
