The Empire of The Stolen Lands is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 610 million Stolen Landsians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tuskdale. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stolen Landsian economy, worth 63.0 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 103,290 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Stolen Lands's national animal is the capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Stolen Lands is ranked 159,280th in the world and 5,326th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -2.28 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
