|Leader||Angela von Stroheim|
The Holy Empire of Steadham is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Angela von Stroheim with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.871 billion Steads 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 prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Steadhan economy, worth 206 trillion Watts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,621 Watts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Steadham's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
