OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Dominion of Sterulia is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, triple-decker prams, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 705 million Sterulians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fenwick. The average income tax rate is 59.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sterulian economy, worth 100 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,664 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, the restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived, and shouting contests are an important part of government job interviews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sterulia's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sterulia is ranked 28,146th in the world and 1,349th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 50.75 quips per hour.
