The Holy Empire of Streleheim is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 472 million love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. A small private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.
Citizens must pay to enjoy Streleheim's pristine beaches, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, there have been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and the Streleheim Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Streleheim's national animal is the Strellic Falcon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Geld.
