The Sky Pirates of Steampunk Engineers is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Steamie with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.563 billion Steampunk Engineers enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The thriving Steampunk economy, worth 155 trillion Widgets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is 99,691 Widgets, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high, euthanasia is legal, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. 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 105,674th in the world and 3,519th in the South Pacific for Most Average, scoring 37.16 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
