The Queendom of SteamPunk Squirrels is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Noel with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, compulsory gun ownership, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.403 billion SteamPunk Squirrelsians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ratatoskr. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient SteamPunk Squirrelsian economy, worth 388 trillion Acorns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,522 Acorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SteamPunk Squirrels's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wicca.

SteamPunk Squirrels is ranked 1,917th in the world and 3rd in Thalassia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 68.12 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
