The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.259 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.

Mollycoddled youths run the country, racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, meat-eating is frowned upon, and expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets. 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 77th in Hippy Haven and 121,207th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -31 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
