The Potato Obsessed Republic of Storalia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sekro Vokyora with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.908 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 2,702 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 194,346 Stora L'Kuns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Scientific progress marches ever forward with the first ever launch of a cheeseburger into space, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, much of Storalia's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless. Crime is totally unknown. Storalia's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Storalia is ranked 224,878th in the world and 8,493rd in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -24.85 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
