The Social Empire of Sebygang is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Spectrenian Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 2.547 billion Sebygangians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spectrenia. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Sebygangian economy, worth 435 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 171,113 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Spectrenian Lionball fields, aides are afraid to ask if The Spectrenian Emperor wants a cup of tea or coffee, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sebygang's national animal is the Spectrenian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No Official Religion.

Sebygang is ranked 8,677th in the world and 165th in Europe for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 424.36 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
