The Holy Empire of Sebastiania is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Sebastian Deshayes with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.815 billion Sebastianians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kungaholmen. The average income tax rate is 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sebastianian economy, worth 225 trillion Kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,244 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, bike rage is all the rage, the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sebastiania's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Sebastiania is ranked 28,783rd in the world and 1,313th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,812.49 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
