The Federation of Streamlineland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Most Esteemed Fish with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.678 billion Streamlinelandians 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."

The tiny, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Healthcare, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Administration and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bottlenose. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The strong Streamlinelandian economy, worth 147 trillion COD a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 55,090 COD, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, it's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, and pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security. Crime is moderate. Streamlineland's national animal is the dolphin, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans, and its national religion is Deep sea diving.

Streamlineland is ranked 38,210th in the world and 2,688th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 125.9 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
