The Stratosphere Islands

Population3.314 billion

CapitalDel Faisán

AnimalGolden Pheasant

The Federal District of The Stratosphere Islands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alphalion with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.314 billion Stratosphereans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Del Faisán. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stratosphere Islandsian economy, worth 508 trillion Bloods a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 153,333 Bloods, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, and lobotomised jaywalkers can barely ambulate let alone repeat their offences. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Stratosphere Islands's national animal is the Golden Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Starlight.

The Stratosphere Islands is ranked 196,518th in the world and 8,599th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.08 Obesity Rate.
