The United Republican States of Sevona is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Descartes with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 4.793 billion Sevonans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Butseks. The average income tax rate is 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, island residents must resort to canoes and sailboats to get to work, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sevona's national animal is the Hoers, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the small shiny rock.

Sevona is ranked 11th in Four Cannon and 87,591st in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -9 on the Hayek Index.
