The Most Serene Republic of Strathae is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its national health service, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.511 billion Strathaeans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Strathaean economy, worth 534 trillion Copars 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 152,148 Copars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The weather in Strathae City is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Strathae's national animal is the Haggis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Strathae is ranked 5,146th in the world and 15th in European Union for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.27 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
