The Empire of Seelelander is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 17.702 billion Seelelandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.8%.

The powerhouse Seelelandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,428 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 80,691 Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 498,454 per year while the poor average 5,660, a ratio of 88.1 to 1.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, graffiti graces every city's streets, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seelelander's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Seelelander is ranked 136,271st in the world and 6th in Tyran for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 51.28 on the Hayek Index.
