The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 20.516 billion St Stephen n Crittersians 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 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.

Companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage. 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 28th in the world for Best Weather, with 2,625 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
