The United Socialist States of Strengthania is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 654 million Strengthanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Strengthanian economy, worth 39.0 trillion Sweats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 59,625 Sweats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, most academic research has ground to a halt, the Bull is a protected species, and adult stores are all sold out of whips. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Strengthania's national animal is the Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Strengthania is ranked 16,070th in the world and 57th in Nihon for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,987.37 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
