OverviewFactbookPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Social Republic of Sedikal is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jęk Belavoveç with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.578 billion Sedikalians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neccereç. The average income tax rate is 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. A robust private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Sedikal to be bombproof, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sedikal's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the shelk.

Sedikal is ranked 14th in ISSU and 25,831st in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 37 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
