The KRAZY CLOWN HOUSE of The Strangers Club is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Glorious Leader Clownpiece with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, flagrant waste-dumping, and feral children. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.953 billion Strangers are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loco Gensokyo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Strange economy, worth a remarkable 1,018 trillion Strange Mons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 257,714 Strange Mons, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,372,758 per year while the poor average 2,847, a ratio of 833 to 1.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, the nation leads The Glorious Nations of Iwaku in per capita stalking, being nicknamed "Orange Face" has done Glorious Leader Clownpiece's credibility no favours, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Strangers Club's national animal is the Strange Clowngirl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Carnivalism.

The Strangers Club is ranked 233,328th in the world and 381st in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -28.81 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
