The Empire of Stoffghanistan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Stoff with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.482 billion Stoffghanistanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stoffengrad. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Stoffghanistanian economy, worth 880 trillion Iron Pennies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 92,809 Iron Pennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, foreign militias and child smuggling rings will always love The Stoff, it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, and colonial subjects have Stoffghanistanian culture shoved down their throats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stoffghanistan's national animal is the Red Snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Stoffism.

Stoffghanistan is ranked 37,684th in the world and 1,065th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
