The Authoritarian Republic of Stralfcyde is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Klara with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, infamous sell-swords, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 2.161 billion Stralfcydians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catsville. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stralfcydian economy, worth 255 trillion Stralf Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 118,229 Stralf Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, troublemakers just happen to be reassigned to distant mining operations, one does not simply walk into the tundra, and politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stralfcyde's national animal is the Stralf Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cat.

Stralfcyde is ranked 104,718th in the world and 2,650th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,348.27 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
