The Working and Mercantile Sneks of Strala is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ya Yangtan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.422 billion Stralians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Somewhere. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stralan economy, worth a remarkable 1,211 trillion Denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 223,377 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Strala's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is God Snek.

Strala is ranked 129,114th in the world and 4,012th in the Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 214.66 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
