The Federation of Stafaland is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 482 million Stafalandians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.
The all-consuming Stafalandian economy, worth 50.9 trillion Mulahs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 105,671 Mulahs, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.
It is rumoured that Leader uses a magic 8-ball to make policy decisions, imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, and it's best not to ask what goes into Stafaland City Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Stafaland's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
