The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Head with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.991 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Circumstance. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped St Stephen n Crittersian economy, worth a remarkable 6,624 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 189,308 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, costumed characters wearing Maxtopian Grass leaves remind citizens that the government now sells the green stuff, and lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work. 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, and its national religion is Secular humanism.

St Stephen n Critters is ranked 208th in the world and 1st in Hippy Haven for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 36,331.02 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
