The Holy Empire of Stevid is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Conroy with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 39.034 billion Stevidians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stevid Capita. The average income tax rate is 7.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stevidian economy, worth an astonishing 13,565 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 347,537 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, the industries of Stevid are coughing all the way to the bank, and tabloids coo over Prime Minister Conroy's expected child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stevid's national animal is the Coyote, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Stevid is ranked 209,550th in the world and 40th in Greater Dienstad for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.8 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
