The People's Covenant of SECP is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pater Noster with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.396 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 Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jericho City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Yellowite economy, worth a remarkable 2,248 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, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. 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 216,284 NEXIS, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

The Gallery of Instasnap is the most popular museum in the country, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, and statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty. 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 134,675th in the world and 14th in United Faction of Nations for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.28 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
