The Sky Pirates of Steampunk Engineers is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Steamie with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.24 billion Steampunk Engineers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 11.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Steampunk economy, worth 265 trillion Widgets a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 81,954 Widgets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Street gangs rule most of the nation's major cities, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, pirates armed with sonar-guided semi-autonomous torpedos and laser weapons systems are often seen capturing fishing trawlers, and the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Steampunk Engineers's national animal is the Manx Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Steampunk Engineers is ranked 7,298th in the world and 240th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 19.17 Obesity Rate.
