The Holy Empire of Stevid is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Conroy with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, flagrant waste-dumping, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.598 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 relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stevid Capita. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stevidian economy, worth an astonishing 12,285 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. Average income is an amazing 345,114 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and priests are being drafted by the church load. 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 816th in the world and 3rd in Greater Dienstad for Safest, scoring 158.73 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
