The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.961 billion Mk Steeleans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded 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 powerhouse Mk Steelean economy, worth a remarkable 1,097 trillion FRDS a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,144 FRDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. 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.
