The Holy Empire of Stevid is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Conroy with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 37.288 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, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, 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 4.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stevidian economy, worth an astonishing 12,695 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 common. Average income is an amazing 340,461 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Long-wed spouses often regret proposals they made when they were twenty, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, edutainment video games are taking Stevid's students to the next level, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. 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 11,772nd in the world and 14th in Greater Dienstad for Most Armed, with 8.32 Weapons Per Person.
