The Advanced Republic of Straona is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Commander Trac-S with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 3.483 billion Straonans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bannerfall. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Straonan economy, worth 497 trillion Glimmers a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,904 Glimmers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, billions of Glimmers are being blown on orbital weapons development, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Straona's national animal is the Ahamkara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Straona is ranked 148,180th in the world and 60th in Novus Lucidum for Most Devout, with 6.28 Prayers Per Hour.
