The Cybernetic Utopia of Steampunk Ariel is a huge, genial nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, daily referendums, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 974 million Cybernetic Mermaids enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantica. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybernetic economy, worth 112 trillion seashells a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 115,354 seashells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 365,167 per year while the poor average 27,802, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Agricultural employees work for peanuts, Formula One cars in Steampunk Ariel boast 56 miles per gallon, most Cybernetic video games are banned in other countries, and supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets. Crime is almost non-existent. Steampunk Ariel's national animal is the clockwork crayon ponyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Steampunk Ariel is ranked 68,164th in the world and 3,550th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,472.49 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
