The Republic of Segland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Alexei Haussmann with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.06 billion Seglanders 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, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ryutsvaag. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Seglandic economy, worth a remarkable 1,907 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 95,092 marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 284,004 per year while the poor average 24,916, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

It's always rabbit season, every workday begins with group therapy, the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Ryutsvaag to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Segland's national animal is the dingleberry, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Segland is ranked 135,022nd in the world and 3rd in Noctur for Most Primitive, scoring -166.3 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
