The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Head with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 38.165 billion St Stephen n Crittersians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Circumstance. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but inefficient St Stephen n Crittersian economy, worth a remarkable 8,648 trillion Jerry Berries a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an amazing 226,597 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, the new one Jerry Berry coin also makes a handy throwing-star, and local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities. Crime is totally unknown. St Stephen n Critters's national animal is the Dancing Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular humanism.

St Stephen n Critters is ranked 265,469th in the world and 56th in Hippy Haven for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -133.8 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
