The Five Tribes of Selan Congress is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.908 billion Selan are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Selan economy, worth 17.8 trillion Social Currencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 9,338 Social Currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Selan Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, and soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Selan Congress's national animal is the Atirapti, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Five Tribes.

Selan Congress is ranked 57,354th in the world and 2,922nd in Osiris for Healthiest Citizens, with 2.93 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
