|Leader||The Federal Council of Stephastan|
|Animal||Black-eyed Leaf Frog|
The Community of Stephastan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Federal Council of Stephastan with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.431 billion Stephastanis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ollie. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Stephastani economy, worth 180 trillion Stepharoonies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Trout Farming industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,232 Stepharoonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, glamping Stephastanis won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", and gossip magazines have pictures of The Federal Council of Stephastan sunbathing on the beach with political rivals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stephastan's national animal is the Black-eyed Leaf Frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Omnism.
