Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.077 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, 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 sluggish St Stephen n Crittersian economy, worth a remarkable 4,187 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 154,639 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, and the constant playing of Merry Birthday on St Stephen n Crittersian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity. 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 10,387th in the world and 2nd in Hippy Haven for Most Extreme, scoring 34.45 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
