|Currency||blood of our enemies|
The Empire of Sterecotia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its public floggings, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 426 million Sterecotians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vindenholh. The average income tax rate is 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Sterecotian economy, worth 27.4 trillion blood of our enemieses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,215 blood of our enemieses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, Mr Happy's Funland has just been named Sterecotia's new capital, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sterecotia's national animal is the ravaged emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
