The Cybernetic Utopia of Steampunk Ariel is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by S'C'U'T'T'L'E with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.915 billion Cybernetic Mermaids enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantica. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybernetic economy, worth 370 trillion seashells a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,232 seashells, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Michelin-star chefs are being called on to prepare menus for six-year-olds, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime is totally unknown. Steampunk Ariel's national animal is the clockwork crayon ponyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Animism.

Steampunk Ariel is ranked 16,955th in the world and 875th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 84.44 on the Human Development Index.
