Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand Duchy of Sideonia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Duke with an even hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, state-planned economy, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.838 billion Sidian are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ahnvarrds. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The large but sluggish Sidan economy, worth 303 trillion Zehts a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 38,704 Zehts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Grand Duke's bedroom. 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, and its national religion is Atheism.

Sideonia is ranked 95th in Nordic Lands and 124,039th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 8 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
