The Holy Empire of Stevid is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Conroy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.074 billion Stevidians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stevid Capita. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stevidian economy, worth an astonishing 12,482 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 346,038 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Herbal teas are only consumed by hipsters who want to look marginal, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, and they say that Stevidians made a dessert and called it peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stevid's national animal is the Coyote, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Stevid is ranked 4,819th in the world and 4th in Greater Dienstad for Most Influential, scoring 15,109 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
