The Rogue Nation of Steel Vagabonds is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The all knowing Father with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 10.948 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 24.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Steel Vagabondsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,522 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 139,028 Baubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. Crime is well under control. 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 80,185th in the world and 2,092nd in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 60.04 on the Hayek Index.
