The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, democratic population of 21.646 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, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant St Stephen n Crittersian economy, worth 488 trillion Jerry Berries a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 22,576 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the nation leads Hippy Haven in per capita stalking, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. St Stephen n Critters's national animal is the Dancing Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

St Stephen n Critters is ranked 43rd in Hippy Haven and 79,428th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.137 Stalins.
