The Republic of SteamEngine is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hans Dampf with an even hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 20.353 billion, 12.479 billion of whom are zombies, SteamEngineans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, the nation leads Deutschland in per capita stalking, and multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 27th in Deutschland and 115,046th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -35 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

SteamEngine is currently considering its options.
