The Most Serene Republic of Staics is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.5 billion Staicsians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Defense are also considered important, 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 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Staicsian economy, worth 622 trillion Sancs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 177,747 Sancs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Recorded music can be rented but not bought from record companies, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, and women no longer need to pepper conversations with incessant references to fictitious husbands. 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 6,019th in the world and 293rd in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 140 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
