The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Head with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, lack of airports, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 35.288 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, liberal, 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 7,087 trillion Jerry Berries a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an amazing 200,854 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, the St Stephen n Critters Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags. 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 1,044th in the world and 2nd in Hippy Haven for Highest Economic Output, with 7,087 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
