OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Fiefdom of Stewiacke is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 15.759 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 Education, Social Equality, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grande-Rivière. The average income tax rate is 97%. A robust private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown. Stewiacke's national animal is the dead moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the worthless paper.

Stewiacke is ranked 5th in 000 Nudist Dreamland and 89,381st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.12 Stalins.
