Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Sturisoma is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Kreu Patrembur with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.631 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 large, 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 Shenjtė Kodėr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Sturisoman economy, worth 878 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 132,537 koobs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,226 per year while the poor average 31,650, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects, notable individuals are granted land and titles, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, and the government is pouring funds into the nation's welfare system. 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 25th in Brochis and 127,350th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -160 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
