Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.601 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, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant St Stephen n Crittersian economy, worth 509 trillion Jerry Berries a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 22,542 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. 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 1st in Hippy Haven and 51st in the world for Best Weather, with 1,212 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
