The Cyberpunk Autocracy of Straknov is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mariye Ookira with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.606 billion Straknovians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auratra Privim. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Straknovian economy, worth 522 trillion Auratra Vitrova a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,977 Auratra Vitrova, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mariye Ookira tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty", anti-riot police are dispatched whenever two elderly ladies gather to complain that prices have increased, the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, and proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Straknov's national animal is the Merlokis Grisaeum, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is 神道.

Straknov is ranked 11,004th in the world and 343rd in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 87.86 quips per hour.
