The Corporate Superpower of Club Stoic is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the CEO with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, aversion to nipples, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.304 billion employees 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.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Club Stoic Global HQ. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient employee economy, worth a remarkable 2,172 trillion Almighty Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 210,824 Almighty Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 837,870 per year while the poor average 35,778, a ratio of 23.4 to 1.

The diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, and exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Club Stoic's national animal is the Unemployed Person, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Club Stoic is ranked 50,864th in the world and 131st in Wintreath for Most Developed, scoring 57.51 on the Human Development Index.
