The Venom-Injected Realms of Strike is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marijan Marelja with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.549 billion Strikeans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lonngeylin. The average income tax rate is 30.5%.

The strong Strikean economy, worth 682 trillion Strikes a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,889 Strikes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is under the thumb of countless special interests, the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, and studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done". Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Strike's national animal is the Zombie Ghost Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Strike is ranked 104,419th in the world and 71st in Atlantian Oceania for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 32,587.94 Standard Monetary Units.
