The Interstellar Posadist Utopia of Staidear is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by General Secretary Liang Yu with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 9.989 billion Staidearians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xin Jiulong. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Staidearian economy, worth a remarkable 1,755 trillion Staidearian yuan 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 175,751 Staidearian yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Staidear's national animal is the raccoon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Posadism.

Staidear is ranked 4,616th in the world and 15th in Declansburg for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 570.39 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
