The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.119 billion St Stephen n Crittersians 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.

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 Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys'. Crime is totally unknown. St Stephen n Critters's national animal is the Dancing Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Jerry Berry.

St Stephen n Critters is ranked 1st in Hippy Haven and 25th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 1,200 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
