The Winged Hussars of Stokesistan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Stokes with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, strictly enforced bedtime, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, devout population of 20.827 billion Stokesistanians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stokesistan City. The average income tax rate is 9.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stokesistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,231 trillion Stakes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,131 Stakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, both criminals and civilians are DOA, the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', and kids these days know how to throw a proper punch. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. Stokesistan's national animal is the Taurus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Stokesistan is ranked 41,203rd in the world and 107th in Europeia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 109.71 on the Hayek Index.
