OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Sturisoma is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Kreu Patrembur with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.888 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."

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 Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shenjtė Kodėr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 94%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology.

Drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, companies balk at paying their workers, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government. 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 24th in Brochis and 108,521st in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -123 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
