The Pacific Alpine Commonwealth of Mount Seymour is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Nathaniel Gardiner with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.481 billion Seymourians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort-Frédéric-sur-le-Montagne. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The large but sluggish Seymourian economy, worth 614 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is 58,632 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many friends and relatives of Prime Minister Nathaniel Gardiner have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, it's best not to ask what goes into Fort-Frédéric-sur-le-Montagne Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, a child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mount Seymour's national animal is the Purple-Spotted Newt, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Seymourian Humanistic Naturalism.

Mount Seymour is ranked 230,538th in the world and 456th in Forest for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -21.14 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
