The Republic of Storage2 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its closed borders, disturbing lack of elderly people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.837 billion Storage2ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.0%.

The very strong Storage2ian economy, worth 242 trillion florins 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Tourism. 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 63,223 florins, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

The aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Storage2ians, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, it's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing, and glassy-eyed Storage2ian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Storage2's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Storage2 is ranked 13,760th in the world and 753rd in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 53.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
