The Delegate in Exile of Boston of Stratagem is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Governor Adams with an even hand, and renowned for its lack of airports, smutty television, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-working, devout population of 3.084 billion Marseholes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 55.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stratagemian economy, worth 225 trillion Pine Tree Shillings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 73,129 Pine Tree Shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, the nation is known abroad for fast food and nothing else, fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers, and colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Stratagemian Liberator". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stratagem's national animal is the Turkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Puritanical Nonsense.

Stratagem is ranked 14,004th in the world and 1st in Boston In Exile for Most Average, scoring 50.26 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
