The Holy Empire of Stevid is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Conroy with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 33.179 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, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stevid Capita. The average income tax rate is 85.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Stevidian economy, worth an astonishing 10,732 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 323,471 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, police nightsticks see use all day long, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and Stevid Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 163,162nd in the world and 58th in Greater Dienstad for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 36.31 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
