The Grand Golden Sunflower Duchy of Stollberg-Stolberg is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Daniel von Gerk zu Stollberg-Stolberg with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 866 million Stollberg-Stolberger have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stollberg. The average income tax rate is 83.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Stollberg-Stolbergian economy, worth 103 trillion Goldweilers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 119,961 Goldweilers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government pours millions of Goldweilers into rehabilitation programs annually, the government is spending billions of Goldweilers on helping citizens find spiritual enlightenment, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, and stores employing more than 100 employees are required to be at least twenty miles from any competitor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stollberg-Stolberg's national animal is the Lovebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Stollberg-Stolberg is ranked 86,159th in the world and 3,493rd in the Pacific for Most Secular, with 17.45 Atheism Rate.
