The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.797 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.
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 97.1%.
The powerhouse Mk Steelean economy, worth a remarkable 1,083 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 110,584 FRDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
CTU District spends billions upgrading public transport, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, the populace harbors a fierce hatred of the metric system, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. 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.
