The Kingdom of Styrica is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Lord of light with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 772 million Styricans are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel hill. The average income tax rate is 80.1%.

The powerhouse Styrican economy, worth 61.7 trillion Styrics a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,980 Styrics, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The Federal Council of Styrica has been announced as the new Head of State, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, Styrican companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Styrica's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Styrica is ranked 150,642nd in the world and 7,643rd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -9.7 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
