The Community of Steelfeather Rapture 2 is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the SR2 Policy Research Institute with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.057 billion avians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong avian economy, worth 58.7 trillion silver doves 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 55,535 silver doves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fattest folk in Steelfeather Rapture 2 look to be the happiest ones, The SR2 Policy Research Institute is strangely popular with male politicians' wives, stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, and it's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it". Crime is totally unknown. Steelfeather Rapture 2's national animal is the avian lost in wilderness, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Steelfeather Rapture 2 is ranked 60,529th in the world and 2nd in Rain Falling in a Digital Void for Most Income Equality, scoring 55.6 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
