The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.555 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 97.3%.
The powerhouse Mk Steelean economy, worth a remarkable 1,179 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 111,744 FRDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Billions are being spent on a new island airport, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, and students athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Noble Dragonball fields. 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.
