The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 12.331 billion Steelites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CTU District. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Mk Steelean economy, worth a remarkable 1,406 trillion FRDS a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,080 FRDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes.

Mk Steele's national animal is the Noble Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
