The Holy Kingdom of Steel B is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Big Cat with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.609 billion Steel Kitty‚€s are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Steel Kitty City. The average income tax rate is 76.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Steel Bian economy, worth 505 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,942 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

A rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, citizens are prohibited from raising their voice above thirty decibels in commercial districts, rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, and the government has declared victoria over the cheese menace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Steel B's national animal is the Cat 🐱, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Steel B is ranked 51,997th in the world and 67th in Yuno for Most Authoritarian, with 966.1 milliStalins.
