The Empire of Secos is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Huginn and Muninn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.618 billion Secosians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravenous. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Secosian economy, worth 131 trillion Ravens Feathers 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 81,507 Ravens Feathers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, skateparks can be found in every city, and tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Secos's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Secos is ranked 156,054th in the world and 5,881st in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.7 Obesity Rate.
