The Queen's State of Sedro is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 22.289 billion Sedroans 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 enormous government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Industry, and International Aid are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Sedroan economy, worth 908 trillion betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,754 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Psychological disorders are a taboo subject, the government is avowedly atheist, foreigners are treated with great suspicion, and the government has legalised small-scale capitalism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sedro's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sedro is ranked 44,584th in the world and 2nd in the Bahamas for Safest, scoring 102.76 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
