The Corporate Meritocracy of Styklelilere is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by James Phillips with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.255 billion Styklelilereans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sumellnrern. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Styklelilerean economy, worth a remarkable 1,741 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 331,352 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,162,629 per year while the poor average 68,505, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

The nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, and stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Styklelilere's national animal is the Alsatian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Styklelilere is ranked 54,576th in the world and 2,006th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,234.58 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
