The Advanced Republic of Straona is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Commander Trac-S with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.214 billion Straonans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bannerfall. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Straonan economy, worth 678 trillion Glimmers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,040 Glimmers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 1,954th in the world and 4th in Novus Lucidum for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 70.18 Bank.
