OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of SteamEngine is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hans Dampf with an even hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 20.628 billion 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, 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 76%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The arms industry is strictly regulated, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown. 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 28th in Deutschland and 118,693rd in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -13 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
