The Republic of Stringen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Skinner Monticello with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.178 billion Stringans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Violinville. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Stringan economy, worth 71.9 trillion Larsens 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 61,046 Larsens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, rock and roll involves rolling literal rocks in prison, and all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stringen's national animal is the Addarian Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Stringen is ranked 83,180th in the world and 105th in USSD for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 68.38 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
