The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.296 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 97.2%.
The powerhouse Mk Steelean economy, worth a remarkable 1,118 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 108,611 FRDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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.
