The Rogue Nation of Steel Vagabonds is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The all knowing Father with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 13.328 billion Steel Vagabondsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Steel Vagabonds City. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Steel Vagabondsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,732 trillion Baubles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,952 Baubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing number of animal species are named 'Bob', people who do not complete their community service are sentenced to more community service, future leaders of Steel Vagabonds regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, and pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy. Crime is totally unknown. Steel Vagabonds's national animal is the Kodiac Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Father worshiping.

Steel Vagabonds is ranked 130,833rd in the world and 4,979th in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 178.44 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
