The People of Stoskavanya is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Socius with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.613 billion Stoskavanyans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lesrenadi. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Stoskavanyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,056 trillion Tributes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Gambling. Average income is an impressive 122,654 Tributes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Half of the nation's import/export industry is run from a location known only as 'Dead Man's Cove', prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Stoskavanya's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
