Sttenia, offically the Stteinese Republic is a country located in Western Capitalist Paradise, with several overseas islands and territories located on other continents. Metropolitan Sttenia extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to the Atlantic Ocean. It is often referred to as L’Hexagone ("The Hexagon") because of the geometric shape of its territory. Sttenia is a unitary semi-presidential republic with its main ideals expressed in the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen.
Metropolitan Sttenia is bordered (clockwise from the north) by Orisgth, Teiden, Holy Germania, Switzerland-Fastercat, Italy, Monaco, Andorra, and Spainshland. Sttenia's overseas departments and collectivities also share land borders with Brazil and Suriname (bordering Stteinese Guiana), and the Netherlands Antilles (bordering Saint-Martin). Sttenia is linked to the United Kingdom by the Channel Tunnel, which passes underneath the English Channel.
