Population333 million


The Commonwealth of Straumrike is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 333 million Straumrikers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 57.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Straumic economy, worth 14.0 trillion Krónes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,007 Krónes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, graffiti graces every city's streets, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Straumrike's national animal is the trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Straumrike is ranked 214,480th in the world and 8,493rd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -7.48 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
