The Grand Golden Sunflower Duchy of Stollberg-Stolberg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Daniel von Gerk zu Stollberg-Stolberg with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.743 billion Stollberg-Stolbergians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stollberg. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Stollberg-Stolbergian economy, worth 472 trillion Goldweilers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 172,108 Goldweilers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stollberg-Stolberg's national animal is the Lovebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Bergisch Christianity.

Stollberg-Stolberg is ranked 2,795th in the world and 70th in the Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 3,462.38 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
