The Commonwealth of House Stark is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.824 billion House Starkians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 32.5%.

The strong House Starkian economy, worth 610 trillion Ices a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 41,192 Ices, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. House Stark's national animal is the Direwolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

House Stark is ranked 89,401st in the world and 3,358th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 55.52 on the Human Development Index.
