The Cute puffy marshmallow fish of SteamPunkFish is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Fat Puffy Fish with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13 billion SteamPunkFishians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puffy Steam City. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient SteamPunkFishian economy, worth a remarkable 1,819 trillion Samurais a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 139,923 Samurais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, oracles predict landslide victories for Fat Puffy Fish for the next 50 years, trespassers entering Fat Puffy Fish's office are immediately vaporized, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SteamPunkFish's national animal is the Goose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Order of the Holy Neptunium.

SteamPunkFish is ranked 13,449th in the world and 35th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Devout, with 1,875.79 Prayers Per Hour.
