The Most Serene Republic of Seantonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Benevolent and Bespectacled Sean with a fair hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.351 billion Seantonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Public Transport 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 1.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seantonian economy, worth 814 trillion tinsoldiers a year, is fairly diversified and 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 impressive 187,277 tinsoldiers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Private law firms are unheard of, residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, and no one knows how to tie a reef knot. Crime is totally unknown. Seantonia's national animal is the chillicrow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Seantonia is ranked 1,012th in the world and 31st in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.94 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
