The Collectivist Cyberocracy of Styklelilere is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Operator Phillips with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.845 billion Styklelilereans 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sumellnrern. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Styklelilerean economy, worth a remarkable 1,991 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 340,784 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,163,189 per year while the poor average 73,469, a ratio of 15.8 to 1.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Styklelilere's radio stations, economists claim no news is good news, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Operator Phillips to meetings with foreign heads of state, and commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Styklelilere's national animal is the Alsatian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Styklelilere is ranked 1,771st in the world and 42nd in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 9,998.33 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
