The Republic of Stach is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 405 million Stachians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 34.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Stachian economy, worth 22.4 trillion Stachoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 55,316 Stachoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, pausing for applause during a speech is seen as a form of censorship, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stach's national animal is the Eagle.

Stach is ranked 205,912th in the world and 192nd in Thaecia for Most Avoided, scoring 1.65 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
