The Rogue Nation of Straeus is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Eden with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 20.249 billion Straeusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Wesford. The income tax rate is 100%.
The enormous but sluggish Straeusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,611 trillion Flints a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 79,587 Flints, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, there's never enough space in space, Viagra factories are being converted to producing antimalarials for Bigtopian orphans, and devotion to God is only skin-deep. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Straeus's national animal is the Pteranodon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Daius.
