The Glorious Evolution of Sthalrim is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.002 billion Iron Lords are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaun. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sthalrimian economy, worth a remarkable 2,475 trillion Iron Medallions a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 494,964 Iron Medallions, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,073,892 per year while the poor average 76,885, a ratio of 27.0 to 1.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, government statistics suggest 115% of the population love Kaiser Wilhelm, families are only permitted to have one child, and the government seizes the property of the recently deceased. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sthalrim's national animal is the Iron Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Iron Banner.

Sthalrim is ranked 19,943rd in the world and 381st in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 847.11558284568 Days.
