The Star Kingdom of Stoinia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Andrei III with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 4.179 billion Stoinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sinaia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 94.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Stoinian economy, worth 547 trillion Stoinian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,008 Stoinian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, national stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stoinia's national animal is the Stoinian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Stoinian Orthodoxy.

Stoinia is ranked 36,671st in the world and 1,450th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,591.9 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
