The People's Republic of Staine is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 774 million Staineans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wibble. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Stainean economy, worth 41.0 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is 52,996 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Staine's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Staine is ranked 220,965th in the world and 15th in Ferngill Federation for Fattest Citizens, with 6.6 Obesity Rate.
