The Empire of Sturisoma is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Kreu Patrembur with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.423 billion 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 92%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Book Publishing.

Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. 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 13th in Brochis and 40,369th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
