The People of Stoskavanya is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Socius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.171 billion Stoskavanyans 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."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lesrenadi. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Stoskavanyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,175 trillion Tributes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Cheese Exports and Gambling. 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 impressive 128,173 Tributes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Half of the nation's import/export industry is run from a location known only as 'Dead Man's Cove', prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stoskavanya's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
