The Federal District of The Stratosphere Islands is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Alphalion with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.11 billion Stratosphereans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Del Faisán. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stratosphere Islandsian economy, worth 483 trillion Bloods a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 155,449 Bloods, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Bloods each year, Alphalion's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, and pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy. Crime is totally unknown. The Stratosphere Islands's national animal is the Golden Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Starlight.

The Stratosphere Islands is ranked 103,964th in the world and 5,199th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,521.39 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
