The Pawky Gallimaufry of Seantonia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Benevolent and Bespectacled Sean with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.987 billion Seantonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, 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 18.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seantonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,428 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 238,650 tinsoldiers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is known as the cheapskates of 10000 Islands, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. Crime is totally unknown. Seantonia's national animal is the chillicrow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Seantonia is ranked 144,014th in the world and 1,087th in 10000 Islands for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.52 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
