The Glorious Throat Medication of Strepsils is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.501 billion Strepsilsians 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strepsils. The average income tax rate is 44.6%.

The strong Strepsilsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,444 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 58,945 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, new religious sects are squashed immediately by the government, Leader has just been declared ruler of Strepsils in an international press conference, and the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Pepsi and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Strepsils's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cruor.

Strepsils is ranked 94,389th in the world and 65th in Ordo Imperialia for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 1,819.78 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
