Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Stratagem is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Governor Adams with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, prohibition of alcohol, and digital currency. The cynical population of 2.163 billion Marseholes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 19.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Stratagemian economy, worth 135 trillion Pine Tree Shillings 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, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 62,645 Pine Tree Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 45,377th in the world and 13th in Boston for Most Stationary, with 198.52297711188 Days.
