Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Stromia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tyr Backstrom with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.006 billion Stromians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Linkoping. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stromian economy, worth a remarkable 3,770 trillion Quints a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 163,908 Quints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tyr Backstrom has more friends than ever before, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, the Stromian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and the new foreign policy is why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale. Crime is totally unknown. Stromia's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Annunakiism.

Stromia is ranked 59,221st in the world and 347th in Europe for Most Authoritarian, with 0.29 Stalins.
