The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 24.762 billion Steelites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federal Steele District. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Mk Steelean economy, worth a remarkable 4,224 trillion FRDS a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 170,585 FRDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, the entire entry for Mk Steele in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', the government has implemented minimum wage laws, and doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 313,433rd in the world and 9,598th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -36.24 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
