The Environmental Protectorate of Steenia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Cretor Lamjack with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 22.305 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.

Citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing. 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 6th in Futaba Aoi and 120,491st in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -22 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
