Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.971 billion St Stephen n Crittersians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded 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 2,304 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 88,750 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and kids building model rockets in their backyard are grounded by Space Agency Rangers. 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 40th in the world and 1st in Hippy Haven for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 98.78 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
