The Pawky Gallimaufry of Seantonia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Benevolent and Bespectacled Sean with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.275 billion Seantonians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kilgore Trout. The average income tax rate is 4.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seantonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,165 trillion tinsoldiers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 220,911 tinsoldiers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines. Crime is totally unknown. Seantonia's national animal is the chillicrow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Seantonia is ranked 180,633rd in the world and 1,305th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -26.85 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
