The Federation of Stroba is a tiny, genial nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 18 million Strobans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 40.1%.

The Stroban economy, worth 839 billion Niloes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 46,628 Niloes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients, euthanasia is legal, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and parachutes are considered optional with the newest line of jet fighters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stroba's national animal is the Rabito.

Stroba is ranked 134,803rd in the world and 5,426th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -7.75 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
