The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Head with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.059 billion St Stephen n Crittersians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Circumstance. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped St Stephen n Crittersian economy, worth a remarkable 6,025 trillion Jerry Berries a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,900 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over The Head's questionably sane new coalition partners, and students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations. Crime is totally unknown. St Stephen n Critters's national animal is the Dancing Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular humanism.

St Stephen n Critters is ranked 3,129th in the world and 3rd in Hippy Haven for Highest Poor Incomes, with 158,320.93 Standard Monetary Units.
