The Empire of Stragalestranspets is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lorien with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.115 billion Stragalestranspetsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaia's Bay. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The enormous but inefficient Stragalestranspetsian economy, worth a remarkable 4,623 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 200,037 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Skateparks can be found in every city, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Gaia's Bay to enjoy their national art. Crime is totally unknown. Stragalestranspets's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Stragalestranspets is ranked 90,235th in the world and 54th in Wysteria for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 473.01 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
