The Republic of Strahcoin is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 811 million Strahconians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trumpiro DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Strahconian economy, worth 84.5 trillion Strahcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 104,209 Strahcoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 516,415 per year while the poor average 11,924, a ratio of 43.3 to 1.

Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Strah Lasagne is a hit, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", and election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Strahcoin's national animal is the Strah, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Strahcoin is ranked 62,623rd in the world and 2nd in Assembly of Strahconian Nations for Most Cultured, scoring 67 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
