The Republic of The Stratosphere Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Edward Orbavaman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.327 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Del Faisán. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stratosphere Islandsian economy, worth 173 trillion Stratosphere Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,708 Stratosphere Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

High school bands practice by moonlight, the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Stratosphere Islands is ranked 74,622nd in the world and 3,682nd in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 62.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
