The Duchy of Styria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Duke Karl IX Siegfried with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.879 billion Styrians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Graz. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.5%.

The thriving Styrian economy, worth 943 trillion schillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Average income is 59,391 schillings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 181,429 per year while the poor average 15,069, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

More and more students are taking up a career in medicine, Styria successfully hosted the German Confederation Olympics, Duke Karl IX Siegfried has just been declared ruler of Styria in an international press conference, and Roman Catholicism has been named as Styria's national religion. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Styria's national animal is the eagle and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Styria is ranked 80,889th in the world and 2nd in German Confederation for Most Extreme, scoring 21.03 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
