The Republic of Sea Lions is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.002 billion Sea Lionians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Singapura. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sea Lionian economy, worth 98.2 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 98,010 Sand Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, the rich and poor vomit into separate bags, voting district maps are said to resemble a tyrannosaurus eating the capital, and Leader is strangely popular with male politicians' wives. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sea Lions's national animal is the Sea Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sea Lions is ranked 102,826th in the world and 3,223rd in The East Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 41.31 Effective Tax Rate.
