The Republic of Stonesbury is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, devout population of 6.561 billion Stonesburyians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 33.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Stonesburyian economy, worth 254 trillion pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,848 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, and soldiers with colourful mohawks make themselves perfect targets for snipers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stonesbury's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Stonesbury is ranked 202,485th in the world and 5,359th in Lazarus for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -5.81 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
