The Republic of Stephine21 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Steph with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.43 billion Stephians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dracopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Stephian economy, worth a remarkable 4,305 trillion Serns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 233,631 Serns, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, the latest drugs are only legally available to private patients, and the 'Half King of Maxtopia' exhibit is the least popular amongst museum-goers. Crime is well under control. Stephine21's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Stephine21 is ranked 29,050th in the world and 1,602nd in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,387.83 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
