The People's Covenant of SECP is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pater Noster with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.374 billion Yellowites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jericho City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Yellowite economy, worth a remarkable 3,187 trillion NEXIS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 257,633 NEXIS, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, it is said that a Yellowite woman's work is never done, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Pater Noster, and it is often said that only Pater Noster could bring down Dàguó. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SECP's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Mind of Nine.

SECP is ranked 64,557th in the world and 3rd in Roman Commonwealth for Most Authoritarian, with 867.24 milliStalins.
