The Federal Republic of Staniel is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Stan Oiz with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.612 billion Stanleians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Staniel City. The average income tax rate is 9.6%.

The very strong Stanleian economy, worth 120 trillion dolts a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is 74,593 dolts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, artificial intelligence seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, and shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Staniel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Staniel's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Staniel is ranked 177,434th in the world and 10,169th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -17.61 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
