The Confederacy of The Democratic Republic of Stirling is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Rorby Pout with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 952 million Stirlings 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stonehelm. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stirling economy, worth 118 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 124,132 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Conspiracy theorists allege Stonehelm's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, it's best not to ask what goes into Stonehelm Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Democratic Republic of Stirling's national animal is the Belted Galloway, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Democratic Republic of Stirling is ranked 209,377th in the world and 2nd in Catonia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -144.69 on the Hayek Index.
