The Community of St Stephen n Critters is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Head with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.407 billion St Stephen n Crittersians 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, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Circumstance. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped St Stephen n Crittersian economy, worth a remarkable 5,962 trillion Jerry Berries a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 173,298 Jerry Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime is totally unknown. St Stephen n Critters's national animal is the Dancing Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular humanism.

St Stephen n Critters is ranked 49th in the world and 1st in Hippy Haven for Safest, scoring 245.37 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
