The Commonwealth of Stromia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tyr Backstrom with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.085 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 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Stromian economy, worth a remarkable 3,949 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 extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 163,963 Quints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Stromians, Tyr Backstrom's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, if they thought anyone would listen the older generation would likely say that nobody listens to them any more, and dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia. 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 1,492nd in the world and 33rd in Europe for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 97.17 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
