The Republic of Straumnesfjall is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Melinda Neufeld-Kelley with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.356 billion Straumners enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andvari-Fljótavík. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Straumner economy, worth 275 trillion Brennis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,101 Brennis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The rainbow assortment of chemicals in the water has turned the frogs gay, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime is totally unknown. Straumnesfjall's national animal is the Otter, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Straumnesfjall is ranked 21,154th in the world and 671st in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 945.8 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
