The Dictatorship of Stentasia is a large, efficient nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 92 million Stentasians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.8%.

The thriving Stentasian economy, worth 6.57 trillion Chaats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 71,381 Chaats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 252,668 per year while the poor average 14,560, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, the tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, and rap artists are regularly arrested for promoting extremist groups. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Stentasia's national animal is the Galapagos Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Stentasia is ranked 22,765th in the world and 730th in The East Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 57.22 Kickbacks Per Hour.
