Seelelander

The Empire of Seelelander is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.51 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 37.6%.

The powerhouse Seelelandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,272 trillion Crowns 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. 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 82,011 Crowns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 323,691 per year while the poor average 14,076, a ratio of 23.0 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 almost non-existent, 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 138,100th in the world and 20th in Tyran for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -6.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
