The Fishy Imperial Stratocracy of Sebatopia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Sea Bass with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, zero percent divorce rate, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.37 billion Sebatopians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fishyville. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Sebatopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,892 trillion Fishbuxes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 432,991 Fishbuxes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,693,985 per year while the poor average 75,396, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.

It's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, an underground group of geologists hides new discoveries to protect them from being destroyed in the name of safety, and photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Sebatopia's national animal is the Lake Trout, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Church of Sea Bass.

Sebatopia is ranked 208,171st in the world and 8,668th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 13,422.75 Standard Monetary Units.
