The United Kingdom of Stefannica is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Governor-General Henry Cameron with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.669 billion Stefannicans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stefannica City. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Stefannican economy, worth a remarkable 3,313 trillion Sefannican Estedoes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 152,925 Sefannican Estedoes, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, the Stefannican Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and the practice of capital punishment proves divisive. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stefannica's national animal is the Stefannican Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nabetseism.

Stefannica is ranked 11,386th in the world and 1st in Alterra for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 377,516 Standard Monetary Units.
