The Fiefdom of Stewiacke is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.423 billion Stewiackeans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grande-Rivière. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.
The large but stagnant Stewiackean economy, worth 671 trillion worthless papers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,523 worthless papers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The tenet of free speech is held dear, Dead moose is one of the most popular forenames in Stewiacke, atheists refusing to attend church are heavily fined by the government, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime is totally unknown. Stewiacke's national animal is the dead moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
Stewiacke is ranked 12th in The Maritimes and 3,421st in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 981.65 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
