The Environmental Protectorate of Steenia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Cretor Lamjack with a fair hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 22.702 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, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Willowsburg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Steenian economy, worth 478 trillion slapsticks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 21,076 slapsticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and the Steenia Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Steenia is ranked 7th in Futaba Aoi and 113,394th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -14 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
