The Second Foundation of Seldon and the Psychohistorians is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hari Seldon with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.266 billion Seldon and the Psychohistoriansians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trantor. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Seldon and the Psychohistoriansian economy, worth 345 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,413 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Seldon and the Psychohistoriansian lands, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, and referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seldon and the Psychohistorians's national animal is the Dodo Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Seldon and the Psychohistorians is ranked 131,907th in the world and 5,685th in the South Pacific for Most Secular, with 14.75 Atheism Rate.
