The Stratosphere Islands

Population5.124 billion

CapitalDel Faisán

AnimalGolden Pheasant

The Federal District of The Stratosphere Islands is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Alphalion with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.124 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, outspoken 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 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stratosphere Islandsian economy, worth 781 trillion Stardusts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,456 Stardusts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, it is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in Stratosphere Islandsian restaurants, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, and producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 19,497th in the world and 1,007th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,927.33 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
