OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Kingdom of Storland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Jay with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.043 billion Storlandians 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 Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haarlem. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Storlandian economy, worth 216 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 105,938 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Storland's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Freedom of beliefs.

Storland is ranked 35,136th in the world and 1,724th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 20.93 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
