Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Sturisoma is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Kreu Patrembur with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 11.028 billion Sturisomen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shenjtė Kodėr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sturisoman economy, worth a remarkable 1,532 trillion koobs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,955 koobs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 403,082 per year while the poor average 37,936, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sturisoma's national animal is the lightning bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sturisoman Orthodox Church.

Sturisoma is ranked 171,150th in the world and 25th in Brochis for Most Avoided, scoring 0.47 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
