The Kingdom of Storland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Jay with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.614 billion 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haarlem. The average income tax rate is 44.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Storlandian economy, worth 184 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 114,583 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, anti-government web sites are springing up, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, and surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks. Crime, especially youth-related, 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, and its national religion is Freedom of beliefs.

Storland is ranked 38,073rd in the world and 1,628th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,302.86 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
