The Most Serene Republic of Staics is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.979 billion Staicsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Druacrego. The average income tax rate is 55.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Staicsian economy, worth 526 trillion Sancs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 176,616 Sancs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning, and citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels. Crime is totally unknown. Staics's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Staics is ranked 55,804th in the world and 2,971st in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 77.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
