Population2.835 billion



The Free Land of Steraz is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Foxian with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.835 billion Sterazians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foxa. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sterazian economy, worth 214 trillion foxins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,578 foxins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Steraz. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 135,250th in the world and 7,215th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 18,818.94 Standard Monetary Units.
