The Protectorate of Stralla is a huge, safe nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 616 million Strallans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stralla. The average income tax rate is 50.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Strallan economy, worth 16.6 trillion Strals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Retail, Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. 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 27,028 Strals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, good-looking soldier boys have celebrity status amongst the nation's homosexuals, the weather in Stralla is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', and the well-to-do in Forest are never on time for important appointments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stralla's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Stralla is ranked 98,620th in the world and 188th in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,724.87 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
