The Rogue Nation of Steel Vagabonds is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The all knowing Father with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.86 billion Steel Vagabondsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Steel Vagabonds City. The average income tax rate is 34.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Steel Vagabondsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,748 trillion Baubles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,962 Baubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, the only thing that can pin down a "superhero" is red tape, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship. Crime is totally unknown. Steel Vagabonds's national animal is the Kodiac Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Father worshiping.

Steel Vagabonds is ranked 37,752nd in the world and 1,374th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,379.32 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
