The Federal District of The Stratosphere Islands is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Alphalion with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.59 billion Stratosphereans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Del Faisán. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stratosphere Islandsian economy, worth 542 trillion Bloods a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,083 Bloods, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Official Sermon-Free Zones are set-up around the nation's hotels, anti-government web sites are springing up, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, and books are so highly regarded in The Stratosphere Islands that libraries are often revered as holy shrines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Stratosphere Islands's national animal is the Golden Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Starlight.

The Stratosphere Islands is ranked 99,128th in the world and 4,375th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 955.66 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
