The Steephills

Population2.72 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Gunnar


The Free Land of The Steephills is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Gunnar with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 2.72 billion Steephillsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asgard. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Steephillsian economy, worth 345 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 127,078 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's rare to find an unchewed pencil, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, and school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Steephills's national animal is the Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Steephills is ranked 146,797th in the world and 274th in The Communist Bloc for Most Armed, with 0.29 Weapons Per Person.
