The Imperial Grand Duchy of Sideonia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor and Grand Duke Serra VI with an iron fist, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.912 billion Sidian are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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 98%. 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.

Criminals are thrown to the Pigs to repay their debt to society, organ donation is compulsory, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government. 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 Asatru, and its currency is the Zeht.

Sideonia is ranked 137th in Nordic Lands and 104,106th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 20 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
