The Constitutional Republic of Stojam is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Adrian Miroslav with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.294 billion Stojamians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Velingrad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.9%.

The thriving Stojamian economy, worth 832 trillion Nova Levs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 132,311 Nova Levs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 638,339 per year while the poor average 15,944, a ratio of 40.0 to 1.

Scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, retail staff are trained to take both inside leg measurements and the lives of their enemies, and edutainment video games are taking Stojam's students to the next level. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stojam's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Stojam is ranked 17,007th in the world and 9th in The Union of Democratic States for Highest Economic Output, with 832 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
