The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Head with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 38.827 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 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 7,384 trillion Jerry Berries a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 190,178 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, small towns have started burning historical buildings in hopes of attracting tourists, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, and cheese lovers have a case of the bleus. 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 228th in the world and 1st in Hippy Haven for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 36,250.18 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
