The Gross Empiredom of Stilton-on-the-Rocks is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Stinking Bishop Tom Bradley with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.942 billion Stiltonians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jarlsberg. Income tax is unheard of.

The very strong Stiltonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,382 trillion Maltropian Ducats a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 92,530 Maltropian Ducats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 403,014 per year while the poor average 13,442, a ratio of 30.0 to 1.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, Stilton-on-the-Rocks-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, copyright laws have been abolished, and the richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Stilton-on-the-Rocks's national animal is the Platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chezzen Christianity.

Stilton-on-the-Rocks is ranked 132,057th in the world and 5th in Paradoxia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.21 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
