The Federal Republic of Mk Steele is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Everett Clarkson with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 22.545 billion Steelites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federal Steele District. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Mk Steelean economy, worth a remarkable 3,521 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 156,210 FRDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time. 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 235,802nd in the world and 12,183rd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.45 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
