Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Steadham is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 692 million 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, Welfare, 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 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Steadhan economy, worth 69.4 trillion Watts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 100,291 Watts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Steads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 14,322nd in the world and 703rd in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 69.4 Quips Per Hour.
