The Principality of Steroublic is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its parental licensing program, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 240 million Steroublicians 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, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Steroublician economy, worth 15.5 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 64,554 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Steroublician grocery store, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Steroublic's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Steroublic is ranked 157,972nd in the world and 910th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 62.29 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
