The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 11.853 billion Mk Steeleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CTU District. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The all-consuming Mk Steelean economy, worth a remarkable 1,341 trillion FRDS a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 113,205 FRDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, euthanasia is illegal, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and bicyclists are banned from major roads. 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.

Mk Steele is ranked 30th in The North Pacific and 1,056th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 241 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
