The Nomadic Peoples of Sticker Island is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 553 million Islandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 34.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Islandian economy, worth 23.4 trillion PVCS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 42,358 PVCS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Leader performing the Full-Monty are selling out, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, and the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying. Crime is totally unknown. Sticker Island's national animal is the Sticky geko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sticker Island is ranked 35,150th in the world and 1,548th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 90 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
