OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Black Hole Army of Sturm is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.853 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The small government is mainly concerned with Religion & Spirituality, although the Environment and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sturm City. The average income tax rate is 16%. A healthy private sector is led by the Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Retail industries.

Pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Sturm's many privately-owned prisons, and the government is reining in public spending. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sturm's national animal is the Eagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is War, and its currency is the Dollar.

Sturm is ranked 100th in Nugut and 29,920th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
