The Glorious Evolution of Sthalrim is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.464 billion Iron Lords 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, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaun. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Sthalrimian economy, worth a remarkable 2,738 trillion Iron Medallions a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 501,168 Iron Medallions, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,873,081 per year while the poor average 93,917, a ratio of 19.9 to 1.
The government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, the only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag, movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, and super-powered zombies parade through the streets of Zaun. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sthalrim's national animal is the Iron Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Iron Banner.
