The Black Hole Army of Sturm is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.627 billion Sturmians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, the Environment, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sturm City. The average income tax rate is 18%. A robust private sector is led by the Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Retail industries.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children, the richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels, and reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sturm's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is War, and its currency is the Dollar.

Sturm is ranked 3rd in Slavya and 45,793rd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 1 Whatever.
