LeaderPresident Jay


The Republic of Storland is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by President Jay with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, democratic population of 897 million Storlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haarlem. The average income tax rate is 24.8%.

The powerhouse Storlandian economy, worth 90.2 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 100,506 kronor, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, President Jay has just been declared ruler of Storland in an international press conference, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Storland's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Storland is ranked 29,208th in the world and 1,634th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 6.47 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
