The Toasted Deliciousness of Strudelia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Strudel with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.16 billion Strudelians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pastryton. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Strudelian economy, worth 104 trillion Icing Packets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 90,198 Icing Packets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, Strudelia's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and the comic book series 'Sir Strudel and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Strudelia's national animal is the Tart, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whatever you want BB.

Strudelia is ranked 23,843rd in the world and 712th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 8.06 Bank.
