In all its glory
Real-life style!

The office is Free Country's token cubicle-filled commercial office building, though its arrangement and exterior have not been verified. Inside, Strong Bad, Homestar Runner, and The Cheat work at generic and fairly ambiguous 'office' jobs. Strong Bad works in a cubicle with a computer. He likes to put comic strips and Post-it notes on the walls, the latter of which he believes will save the company millions. Homestar's work area was first featured in the Strong Bad Email isp. The office has a wood-paneled boardroom equipped with a dry-erase board. Shareholders meet there to discuss the earnings. Since Strong Bad usually gives tips about how to use the Internet, it could be a tech support company.

Their work seems to involve multi-tasking, or creating the illusion of multi-tasking when they report to their superiors in the assumed company.

Rondleman, Gunderson, and Mancuso are the names of three of Strong Bad and Homestar's co-workers. Homestar seems to think that Strong Bad is Rondleman, who works in Regional Shipping Management Resources. Gunderson and Mancuso work in Accounting. Mancuso put his own three-hole punch in the microwave on at least one occasion, which led Homestar to think he sucks. Gunderson, according to Homestar, doesn't suck.

The office apparently has spaces occupied by Senor Cardgage's mortgage company, Senor Cardgage Mortgage. It is featured in his company's TV promotion as where calls are transferred to and received by his many "handsome talking experts." None of the experts have never been seen, however, and since Senor Cardgage's current condition has been described by Strong Bad as 'living in the gutter with grandma', it is possible that he does not actually own space in the building.

The office is also home to a tech support calling center where Homestar works and where Strong Bad called up to complain about his slow internet speeds. As a parody of many reports of inferior tech support, Homestar repeats prepared replies that are not related to Strong Bad's questions. Homestar also claims he is "not in India."

It also apparently has a water cooler, where Homestar Runner tries to make conversation. In the email "4 branches", he gets stuck, and decides to stay for the rest of his life.
