The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 20.938 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.

The words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, Dancing Bear is one of the most popular forenames in St Stephen n Critters, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. 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 168th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 549 Dawkins.
