The Environmental Protectorate of Steenia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Cretor Lamjack with a fair hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.598 billion Steenians 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Willowsburg. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and people are moving into treehouses in record numbers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Steenia's national animal is the flying squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the slapstick.

Steenia is ranked 2nd in Futaba Aoi and 23rd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 117 on the Enoch Index.
