The Free Land of Steraz is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Foxian with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.683 billion Sterazians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foxa. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sterazian economy, worth 278 trillion foxins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,678 foxins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, the derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, tourists avoid using the nation's bugged phones and monitored internet, and radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Steraz's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Foxsism.

Steraz is ranked 90,938th in the world and 5,187th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 80.55 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
