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 remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.707 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 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.

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 81st in Nordic Lands and 54,258th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 91 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
