The Advanced Republic of Straona is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Victor Craux with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.863 billion Straonans 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bannerfall. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Straonan economy, worth a remarkable 1,299 trillion Glimmers a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 189,361 Glimmers, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, and annual government budgets include a sizeable spend on "making things look fabulous". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Straona's national animal is the Ahamkara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whatever God you want to worship.

Straona is ranked 229,618th in the world and 136th in The Wolf Clan for Fattest Citizens, with 5.83 Obesity Rate.
