The Republic of Staubsaugen is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.011 billion Staubsaugenians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreck. The average income tax rate is 81.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Staubsaugenian economy, worth 115 trillion bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,605 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, nose plugs are the latest Staubsaugenian fashion accessory, and fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Staubsaugen's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Staubsaugen is ranked 4,535th in the world and 116th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,638.41 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
