The Empire of Sturisoma is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Kreu Patrembur with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.349 billion, 1.345 billion of whom are zombies, 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 94%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Book Publishing.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Sturisoma to be bombproof, and Lightning bug is one of the most popular forenames in Sturisoma. 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 8th in Brochis and 11,065th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Sturisoma is currently researching a cure.
