The Republic of Streambuf is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 5.72 billion Streambufians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Streambufian economy, worth 309 trillion baht a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 54,034 baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Streambufians, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Streambuf's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Streambuf is ranked 67,244th in the world and 1,234th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,590.88 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
