The Blessed Kingdom of Strenida is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by King Markus I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, triple-decker prams, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 969 million Strenidans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Herudot. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Strenidan economy, worth 147 trillion Stren Marks a year, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,606 Stren Marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Strenidan emissions at all, the nation is famous for bravely sending wave after wave of its soldiers until the enemy runs out of bullets, all artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, and theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Strenida's national animal is the Wild Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Strenida is ranked 38,358th in the world and 1,473rd in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,478.13 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
