The Black Hole Army of Sturm is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory gun ownership, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.297 billion Worms enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HQ. The average income tax rate is 13.8%.
The very strong Sturmian economy, worth 337 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 40,699 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.
The government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, and homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes. Crime is moderate. Sturm's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is War.
