The Rainbow Republic of Saint-Sebastian is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Rosko Alaska with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.267 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stonewall. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Information Technology and Tourism.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Pink Pound mansions, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive. Saint-Sebastian's national animal is the lion and the peacock, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Pink Pound.

Saint-Sebastian is ranked 116th in Gay and 118,313th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -22 Whatever.
