The United Kingdom of Steviland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Stevi Steve with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.061 billion Stevilandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marcellona. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Stevilandian economy, worth 85.3 trillion ruttles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,431 ruttles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and calling out of the blue has become taboo. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Steviland's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Believe in Yourself.
