The Jarldom of Stolkland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jarl Ragnar Flokisson with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.261 billion Stolks 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nor­ureyjar. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Stolkish economy, worth 671 trillion Discovs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,282 Discovs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Populations of two-headed Ravens have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, police officers catch up on their paperwork while handing their caseload to PIs, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, and a new "thought police" branch is being developed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stolkland's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Norse.

Stolkland is ranked 9,361st in the world and 5th in Lorania for Lowest Crime Rates, with 96.19 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
