The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.129 billion Steelites 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.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CTU District. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Mk Steelean economy, worth a remarkable 2,284 trillion FRDS a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,389 FRDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The election for President Everett Clarkson's office's janitor is heating up, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them, and military training in Mk Steele emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mk Steele's national animal is the Noble Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mk Steele is ranked 1,384th in the world and 68th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.21 on the Human Development Index.
