The Federal District of The Stratosphere Islands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alphalion with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.747 billion Stratosphereans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Del Faisán. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stratosphere Islandsian economy, worth 718 trillion Stardusts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,348 Stardusts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, the new hit series "The Stratosphere Islands's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country, and children's daycare starts at the crack of dawn. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Stratosphere Islands's national animal is the Golden Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Starlight.

The Stratosphere Islands is ranked 6,281st in the world and 363rd in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,035.9 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
