OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of SteamEngine is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hans Dampf with a fair hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 19.192 billion 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of James-Watt-City. The average income tax rate is 77%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, online tourism reviews of SteamEngine are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, genetic researchers have been expelled, and calling out of the blue has become taboo. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the firegold.

SteamEngine is ranked 32nd in Deutschland and 122,238th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -16 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
