The Cheese Obsessed Republic of Storalia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Sekro Vokyora with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.4 billion Storalians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Storalisburg. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Storalian economy, worth a remarkable 2,599 trillion Stora L'Kuns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 194,022 Stora L'Kuns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and Storalia has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime is totally unknown. Storalia's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Storalia is ranked 202,845th in the world and 8,170th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -10.77 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
