The Democratic Republic of The Stratosphere Islands is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 654 million Stratosphereans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Del Faisán. The average income tax rate is 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Stratosphere Islandsian economy, worth 61.4 trillion Stratosphere Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 93,865 Stratosphere Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Stratosphere Islands's national animal is the Golden Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
