The Democratic Republic of Stuzemstazem is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Steve Raymond with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working population of 6.572 billion Stuzemstazians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Udam. The average income tax rate is 74.0%.

The all-consuming Stuzemstazemian economy, worth 494 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 75,243 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party, and Udam's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stuzemstazem's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Stuzemstazem is ranked 129,807th in the world and 6,546th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 384.35 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
