The Republic of 10SQN is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 862 million 10SQNians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.3%.

The very strong 10SQNian economy, worth 70.1 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 81,351 kronor, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 10SQN's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

10SQN is ranked 12,145th in the world and 234th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,514.54 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
