OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of SteamEngine is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hans Dampf with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate population of 19.92 billion SteamEngineans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 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 nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, the government pours millions of firegolds into rehabilitation programs annually, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, and the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in SteamEngine. 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 26th in Deutschland and 109,342nd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring -48 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
