The Democratic Republic of Stratonesia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Voomy Ngiyes Kalamaroa with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.007 billion Stratonesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gudaville. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Stratonesian economy, worth 604 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 201,094 credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, the term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning, and guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stratonesia's national animal is the python, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Deunamism.

Stratonesia is ranked 295,835th in the world and 7,429th in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 0.45 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
