The Old Forest of Stork is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Big Bird with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 40.229 billion Storks have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Environment, with Law & Order, Welfare, and Public Transport also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ChimneyTop. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Storkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,495 trillion fish a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,180 fish, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Stork successfully hosted the Vatican II Olympics, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, and 90% of active duty SAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stork's national animal is the stork, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Stork is ranked 262,792nd in the world and 4th in Vatican II for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -17.23 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
