Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Steadham is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Angela von Stroheim with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, otherworldly petting zoo, and digital currency. The compassionate, cheerful population of 1.032 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Steadhan economy, worth 113 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 110,434 Watts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", the endangered saltwater humpback Giraffe is only seen in captivity programs, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, and heavily subsidised Steadhan baskets litter the streets of The North Pacific. 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.

Steadham is ranked 138,693rd in the world and 7,380th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -6.32 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
