The Militaristic Democracy of Streidenberg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Palisov with an iron fist, and notable for its daily referendums, ritual sacrifices, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.923 billion Streidenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geataí Órga City. The average income tax rate is 75.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Streidenbergian economy, worth 306 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,961 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government's policy is 'all pain, no grain', when conspiracy theorists talk about "government moles" they're referring to mysteriously mobile skin lesions, hordes of faceless civil servants are running cities, and young men in tiny bikinis draw neither comment nor stares on the morning commute. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Streidenberg's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Palisovism.

Streidenberg is ranked 135,741st in the world and 5,483rd in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 632.69 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
