The Advanced Republic of Straona is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Victor Craux with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.677 billion Straonans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bannerfall. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Straonan economy, worth a remarkable 1,253 trillion Glimmers a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 187,744 Glimmers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Glimmer charge on their phone bill. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Straona's national animal is the Ahamkara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whatever God you want to worship.

Straona is ranked 7,522nd in the world and 5th in The Wolf Clan for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,865.69 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
