The Cybernetic Utopia of Steampunk Ariel is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by S'C'U'T'T'L'E with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 1.292 billion Cybernetic Mermaids 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantica. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybernetic economy, worth 145 trillion seashells a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 112,474 seashells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 398,828 per year while the poor average 22,880, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders. Crime is relatively low. Steampunk Ariel's national animal is the clockwork crayon ponyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Animism.

Steampunk Ariel is ranked 13,712th in the world and 769th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 82.23 on the Human Development Index.
