The Republic of Streinct is a huge, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 363 million Streinctians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 33.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Streinctian economy, worth 12.5 trillion streinctions a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 34,521 streinctions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Skateparks can be found in every city, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, saying the word 'eggplant' is now a criminal offense, and Streinct has designated Streinct City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Streinct's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Streinct is ranked 152,953rd in the world and 1,574th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring zero on the Hickory Productivity Index.
