The Cheese Obsessed Republic of Storalia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sekro Vokyora with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.643 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 2,100 trillion Stora L'Kuns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 180,392 Stora L'Kuns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Storalia's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Storalia is ranked 2,789th in the world and 14th in The Western Isles for Most Pacifist, with 180.69 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
