The People's Republic of Stalstatt is a small, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 32 million Stalstatans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 65.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Stalstatan economy, worth 1.19 trillion Goldmarks a year, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,144 Goldmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

All mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Leader For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Leader's supporters, victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, and NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stalstatt's national animal is the Grey Wolf.

Stalstatt is ranked 79,966th in the world and 41st in Red Wolf Alliance for Most Corrupt Governments, with 3.99 Kickbacks Per Hour.
