The Working and Mercantile Sneks of Strala is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ya Yangtan with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.547 billion Stralans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Somewhere. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Stralan economy, worth a remarkable 2,861 trillion Denarii 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. 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 an amazing 299,703 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, recapturing giraffes is proving to be a tall order, organ donation is compulsory, and guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Strala's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is God Snek.

Strala is ranked 263,592nd in the world and 9,185th in the Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.64 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
