The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Head with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.03 billion St Stephen n Crittersians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken 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 underdeveloped St Stephen n Crittersian economy, worth a remarkable 6,021 trillion Jerry Berries a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,935 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. 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 28,047th in the world and 19th in Hippy Haven for Nudest, with 210 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
