The Republic of Stoneisland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by George Best with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.86 billion Hooligans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Stadium. The average income tax rate is 23.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Hooligan economy, worth a remarkable 1,181 trillion Quibs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 119,842 Quibs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Stoneisland's pristine beaches, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, and funding for education has been redirected into the military. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Stoneisland's national animal is the Anorak, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Football.

Stoneisland is ranked 17,425th in the world and 3rd in The Crown Federation of Recon for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,343.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
