The United States of Strigberg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dieter Swife with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.496 billion Strigbergers 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nazsville. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Strigbergian economy, worth 569 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 163,028 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Strigberg's national animal is the Blue Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Judaism.

Strigberg is ranked 239,864th in the world and 1,085th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -8.83 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
