The Holy Empire of Stevid is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Conroy with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.445 billion Stevidians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stevid Capita. The average income tax rate is 5.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stevidian economy, worth an astonishing 12,808 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 342,064 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government maintains that belief brings greater security than money or a roof, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, it's entirely possible foreign diplomats misheard when Stevid offered the words "peace be upon you", and women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stevid's national animal is the Coyote, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Stevid is ranked 189,877th in the world and 48th in Greater Dienstad for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.73 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
