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 remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.356 billion Sturisomen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, 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 ShenjtŽ KodŽr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Sturisoman economy, worth a remarkable 1,136 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 136,003 koobs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 383,909 per year while the poor average 38,568, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Political activists are routinely executed, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, police officers have been re-kitted with designer uniforms and gold plated handcuffs, 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 10th in Brochis and 24,957th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 48 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
