The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.889 billion Mk Steeleans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 97.9%.
The powerhouse Mk Steelean economy, worth a remarkable 1,213 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 major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,435 FRDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. 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.
