The Empire of Sterlont is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 225 million Sterlontians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Sterlontian economy, worth 24.3 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 108,208 credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 878,271 per year while the poor average 2,947, a ratio of 298 to 1.

Children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Sterlont' is a smash hit, and the justice of Sterlont is considered superior to that of other nations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sterlont's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sterlont is ranked 97,636th in the world and 474th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,159.97 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
