Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Sturisoma is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Kreu Patrembur with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.225 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 Shenjtė Kodėr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sturisoman economy, worth 982 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 135,937 koobs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 426,957 per year while the poor average 33,138, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, punitive tariffs protect local industry, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Sturisoma after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists. 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 19th in Brochis and 106,200th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -335 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
