The United Socialist States of The Stag is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 808 million Stagians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Stagian economy, worth 31.6 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 39,123 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All guns must be registered, thalassophobia and heliophobia are on the rise, atheists in the nation feel uneasy living in buildings where they were once vilified, and hit TV comedies "The Big Government Theory" and "Young Leader" have high ratings but low quality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Stag's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Stag is ranked 26,516th in the world and 901st in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 40.91 Atheism Rate.
