The Most Serene Republic of Staics is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 2.605 billion Staicsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Druacrego. The average income tax rate is 47.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Staicsian economy, worth 455 trillion Sancs 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, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 impressive 174,752 Sancs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", and Staicsians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks. 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 53,304th in the world and 2,617th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,846.22 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
