The Advanced Republic of Straona is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Commander Trac-S with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.063 billion Straonans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bannerfall. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Straonan economy, worth 890 trillion Glimmers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,951 Glimmers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Straona's national animal is the Ahamkara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whatever God you want to worship.

Straona is ranked 196,370th in the world and 41st in Novus Lucidum for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -11.74 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
