The Pawky Gallimaufry of Seantonia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Benevolent and Bespectacled Sean with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.728 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 tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kilgore Trout. The average income tax rate is 1.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seantonian economy, worth 966 trillion tinsoldiers a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 204,460 tinsoldiers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, the government has declared that too much democracy gets in the way of sensible leadership, a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, and expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets. Crime is totally unknown. Seantonia's national animal is the chillicrow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Seantonia is ranked 177,175th in the world and 1,356th in 10000 Islands for Fattest Citizens, with 3.59 Obesity Rate.
