The Midsummer Night's Spit Swap of Stephanie is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stephanie with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical, devout population of 4.422 billion Stephanies 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stephania. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Stephanie-anne economy, worth 264 trillion worthless dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 59,893 worthless dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students cut up leftover worthless dollars during Arts and Crafts, sex changes are routinely performed at Stephanie's hospitals, pro-wrestling bouts open with a legal disclaimer insisting that any violence is guaranteed 100% faked, and an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stephanie's national animal is the three legger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is which ever way the wind blows.

Stephanie is ranked 73,834th in the world and 52nd in South Pacific for Nudest, with 158.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
