The Kingdom of Struatho is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 162 million Struathoans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.2%.

The strong Struathoan economy, worth 10.0 trillion Slylings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 61,916 Slylings, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Struatho's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Struatho is ranked 49,900th in the world and 17th in Auralia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 98.81 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
