The Commonwealth of Federated Commonwealth of Selstville is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Kenneth Priya with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.852 billion Selestvieans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beaufort. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Selestviean economy, worth 860 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,986 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In musicals everybody's a little bit racist, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, former arsonists can be found on local fire brigades, and children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Dollar charge on their phone bill. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Federated Commonwealth of Selstville's national animal is the Kangaroo and Brown Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Federated Commonwealth of Selstville is ranked 301,001st in the world and 275th in The Western Isles for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 18.06 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
