The Holy Republic of Seangoli is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.707 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 Education, Public Transport, and Environment also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but underdeveloped Seangolian economy, worth a remarkable 1,178 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 slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 47,688 seancoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, computers are widely considered to be the "devil magic of heathens", and it is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated. 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 8,264th in the world and 283rd in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 4,988.7 milliStalins.
