The Sky Pirates of Steampunk Engineers is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Steamie with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.847 billion Steampunk Engineers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 9.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Steampunk economy, worth 248 trillion Widgets a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 87,447 Widgets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Street gangs rule most of the nation's major cities, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, pirates armed with sonar-guided semi-autonomous torpedos and laser weapons systems are often seen capturing fishing trawlers, and the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Steampunk Engineers's national animal is the Manx Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Steampunk Engineers is ranked 230,491st in the world and 7,694th in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 17.03 Tourists Per Hour.
