The Imperial Grand Duchy of Sideonia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor and Grand Duke Serra VI with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.386 billion Sidian 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 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.

Murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, Sideonia is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, homosexuality is a crime punishable by death, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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 185th in Nordic Lands and 109,338th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -241 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
