The Borderlands of Straka Witherward is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.21 billion Strakans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nepenthe'astu. The average income tax rate is 25.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Strakwardian economy, worth 446 trillion chits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,408 chits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The lizard is a protected species, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, Straka Witherward has designated Nepenthe'astu as its capital city, and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. Crime is totally unknown. Straka Witherward's national animal is the lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Straka Witherward is ranked 245,627th in the world and 9th in Auxilium for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 23.17 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
