Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.554 billion St Stephen n Crittersians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but stagnant St Stephen n Crittersian economy, worth a remarkable 2,774 trillion Jerry Berries a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,496 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, an epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime is totally unknown. St Stephen n Critters's national animal is the Dancing Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

St Stephen n Critters is ranked 105,393rd in the world and 39th in Hippy Haven for Largest Black Market, with 100 billion Standard Monetary Units.
