Ah, Malta. Paradise. Heaven on earth! The greatest country in the world!

Right? Well, maybe not…

In this acclaimed book (acclaimed by himself, that is), loud-mouth comedian Steve Hili takes an in-depth look at the state of the Maltese nation, taking no prisoners as he pulls the country apart, offering his unique – and sometimes naughty and offensive – views on everything, from politics to religion, via massage parlours, Eurovision, booze and social media.

If you’ve ever wondered how the traffic situation on our islands could be solved, what really happens when you call Maltese Government departments, and what our equivalent to the moon landings could be, this is the book for you.



Dealing with those weird and wonderful traits that make us Maltese, State of the Nation is a mischievous book for anyone with a sense of humour and a connection to Malta. It will have you laughing out loud…

Potentially. It could technically make you want to punch Steve in the face.

State of the Nation is available from all major bookshops in Malta, or online.
