Population2.853 billion



The Free Land of Steraz is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Foxian with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.853 billion Sterazians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foxa. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sterazian economy, worth 216 trillion foxins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,883 foxins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Steraz. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Steraz's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Foxsism.

Steraz is ranked 27,118th in the world and 1,311th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 74.6 on the Human Development Index.
