The Rogue Nation of Stovicor is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its public floggings, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 36.124 billion Stovicorians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.6%.

The all-consuming Stovicorian economy, worth a remarkable 6,391 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 176,933 credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 943,925 per year while the poor average 17,429, a ratio of 54.2 to 1.

Guns are banned, criminals are executed and their property seized, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stovicor's national animal is the Targ, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Stovicor is ranked 163,641st in the world and 11th in Dragon Lair for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 21.71 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
