Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.537 billion Steelites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CTU District. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mk Steelean economy, worth a remarkable 1,869 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,586 FRDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, the Mk Steele Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, many politicians are in rehab for minor drug offenses, and the local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags. 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 174,948th in the world and 9,627th in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 5.95 Insults Per Minute.
