The Rogue Nation of Steel Vagabonds is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The all knowing Father with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 16.869 billion Steel Vagabondsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Steel Vagabonds City. The average income tax rate is 62.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Steel Vagabondsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,109 trillion Baubles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 125,053 Baubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, out-of-work actors say they can't complain, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers. Crime is totally unknown. Steel Vagabonds's national animal is the Kodiac Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Father worshiping.

Steel Vagabonds is ranked 190,445th in the world and 3,942nd in Lazarus for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.54 crimes per hour.
