Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of SteamEngine is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hans Dampf with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.065 billion SteamEngineans 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.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of James-Watt-City. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant SteamEnginean economy, worth 213 trillion firegolds a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 10,136 firegolds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, and the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SteamEngine's national animal is the firedrake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SteamEngine is ranked 3rd in Deutschland and 1,282nd in the world for Most Primitive, scoring 135 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
