The Imperial Grand Duchy of Sideonia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor and Grand Duke Serra VI with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.81 billion are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ahnvarrds. The average income tax rate is 97%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Families are only permitted to have one child, the government is buying children's books by the thousands, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in Nordic Lands, and military spending is on the increase. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sideonia's national animal is the Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Floorism, and its currency is the Zeht.

Sideonia is ranked 193rd in Nordic Lands and 111,027th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -5 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
