The Federal Republic of Stroulia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Maddison Goddard with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.543 billion Stroulians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Regario. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stroulian economy, worth 997 trillion Stroulian pounds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,401 Stroulian pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stroulia's national animal is the Stroulian Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Stroulia is ranked 263,983rd in the world and 1,250th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -18.97 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
