The Corporate Superpower of Club Stoic is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the CEO with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, aversion to nipples, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.707 billion employees are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Club Stoic Global HQ. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient employee economy, worth a remarkable 3,166 trillion Almighty Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 215,292 Almighty Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,346,078 per year while the poor average 14,638, a ratio of 92.0 to 1.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, an Artificial Solar System Tourist Association survey has rated Club Stoic #1 for number twos, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, and citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Club Stoic's national animal is the Unemployed Person, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Club Stoic is ranked 218,849th in the world and 3,248th in Artificial Solar System for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -12.65 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
