The Military Junta of Streidenberg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Palisov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, zero percent divorce rate, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.9 billion Streidenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geataí Órga City. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Streidenbergian economy, worth 300 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,719 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, General Palisov is worshipped as a god, the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Streidenians, and delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Streidenberg's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Palisovism.

Streidenberg is ranked 226,547th in the world and 7,544th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 14.09 Insults Per Minute.
