“Defenders of Peace”
|Category: Left-Leaning College State|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The North Pacific
The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.532 billion Mk Steeleans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CTU District. The average income tax rate is 98%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in The North Pacific, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mk Steele's national animal is the Noble Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the FRD.
