The Empire of Steppe Khanate is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.274 billion Steppeses are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Spirituality, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.5%.
The very strong Steppe Khanatean economy, worth 175 trillion Төгрөгs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 53,662 Төгрөгs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 155,412 per year while the poor average 14,683, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.
In a fit of passion Leader has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Steppe Khanate's national animal is the Horse, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
