The Free Land of Steraz is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Foxian with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.698 billion Sterazians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foxa. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sterazian economy, worth 281 trillion foxins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,225 foxins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass, schoolchildren must pass a six-month Ethics and Safety Committee Assessment before they are allowed to mix baking soda and vinegar, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Steraz's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Foxsism.

Steraz is ranked 18,490th in the world and 1,100th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,418.99 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
