The Empire of Stanians is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Lord Stan with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.155 billion Stanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xhaxhu. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stanian economy, worth 896 trillion Nubs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,937 Nubs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, religious education is a new government priority, and Air Stanians is rumored to receive more government funding than the Stanian Air Force. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stanians's national animal is the Banooza, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Stanians is ranked 5,070th in the world and 273rd in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 19.72 bananas ingested per day.
