The Democratic Republic of The Free States of Strattonia is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 326 million Free States of Strattonians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The thriving Free States of Strattonian economy, worth 26.2 trillion Strattonian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 80,481 Strattonian Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 271,415 per year while the poor average 17,667, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, a milk bath costs more than bathing in money, and corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Free States of Strattonia's national animal is the Reptillian Infandale.

The Free States of Strattonia is ranked 101,814th in the world and 4,644th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,351.16 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
