The Republica Confoederationis of Stephaniesland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Director Stephanie Cordato with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The quiet, industrious population of 2.239 billion Stephanieslandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Raleigh. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stephanieslandian economy, worth 404 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 180,745 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, the government funds large training centres to turn Cats into functioning members of society, and there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stephaniesland's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Stephaniesland is ranked 24,005th in the world and 17th in Confederacy of Layem for Rudest Citizens, with 103.75 Insults Per Minute.
