The Free Land of Steraz is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Foxian with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.741 billion Sterazians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foxa. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sterazian economy, worth 277 trillion foxins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,252 foxins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students do more community service than homework, engaged partners detail their fiancés' private lives in detail to prurient bureaucrats, a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, and Foxian's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Steraz's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Foxsism.

Steraz is ranked 29,584th in the world and 1,394th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 74.42 on the Human Development Index.
