The Neo-Dominion of Sterkistan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Relena Peacecraft with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 11.044 billion Sterks 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bersheedan. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sterkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,949 trillion Pers a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 176,515 Pers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, nudity is frowned upon, conspiracy theorists allege Bersheedan's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and children seem to be getting better at lying these days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sterkistan's national animal is the Albutra Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Technoseverism.

Sterkistan is ranked 201,571st in the world and 8th in Empire of Andrew for Most Primitive, scoring -454.83 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
