The Isle of Stratanova is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Federal Council of Stratanova with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 20.367 billion Stratanovans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stratanova City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Stratanovan economy, worth a remarkable 5,454 trillion Xerxes Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 267,794 Xerxes Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters of politicians in sensual poses can be found on the walls of teenagers' rooms, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, Stratanovan police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and citizens spend millions on microtransactions to feed virtual orphans while actual orphans starve overseas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stratanova's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is just being cool.

Stratanova is ranked 254th in the world and 17th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 46.17 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
