Population29.097 billion

LeaderTyr Backstrom


The Commonwealth of Stromia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tyr Backstrom with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, avant-garde cinema, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cheerful population of 29.097 billion Stromians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Linkoping. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Stromian economy, worth a remarkable 4,634 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 159,290 Quints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, euthanasia is legal, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. 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 Anunnakiism.

Stromia is ranked 11,598th in the world and 169th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 159,290.97 Standard Monetary Units.
