The United Kingdom of Selsordia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rick Astley with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.503 billion Selsordians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miami. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Selsordian economy, worth 167 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,734 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 326,895 per year while the poor average 30,141, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

The nation's smallest Bearball teams trade draft picks for a free lunch, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Miami, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and gay men commonly complain about their time of the month. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Selsordia's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Rickrollism.

Selsordia is ranked 25,208th in the world and 9th in Odrya for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.83 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
