The Popular Autonomous Republic of Seledo is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by the National Popular Council with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 943 million Seledori are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SPARK City. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Seledori economy, worth 90.3 trillion dolours a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 95,774 dolours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, books are often used as kindling, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-dolour mansions, and religious households enthusiastically use whips in private. Crime is totally unknown. Seledo's national animal is the fruit bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Seledo is ranked 19,010th in the world and 229th in The Communist Bloc for Most Developed, scoring 76.35 on the Human Development Index.
