The Democratic Republic of Stuzemstazem is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Johnny Lambada with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 8.02 billion Stuzemstazians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Udam. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Stuzemstazian economy, worth 574 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is 71,634 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stuzemstazem's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Stuzemstazem is ranked 137,312th in the world and 5,773rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.92 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
