The Holy Republic of Seangoli is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.908 billion Seangolians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, with Public Transport, Education, and Environment also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but underdeveloped Seangolian economy, worth a remarkable 1,148 trillion seancoes 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 large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. 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 50,151 seancoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Troops are either deafened by gunfire or a hysterical voice screaming the Party manifesto, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Seangolian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, and an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Seangoli's national animal is the pygmy elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Seangoli is ranked 109,468th in the world and 3,526th in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 326.26 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
