The Democratic Kingdom of Streidenberg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Miles Buechan with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.508 billion Streidenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geataí Órga City. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Streidenbergian economy, worth 250 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,899 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, torture is illegal, strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, and the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Streidenberg's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Psuedo-Christianity.

Streidenberg is ranked 215,142nd in the world and 8,984th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 88.83 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
