The Cybernetic Utopia of Steampunk Ariel is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by S'C'U'T'T'L'E with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.724 billion Cybernetic Mermaids enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantica. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cybernetic economy, worth 444 trillion seashells a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,251 seashells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Michelin-star chefs are being called on to prepare menus for six-year-olds, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime is totally unknown. Steampunk Ariel's national animal is the clockwork crayon ponyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Animism.

Steampunk Ariel is ranked 105,977th in the world and 4,718th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,683.06 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
