The Commonwealth of Seprum is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President William Lore with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.236 billion Seprumians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seprum City. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seprumian economy, worth 636 trillion pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 150,222 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-vacs campaigners claim the government is inserting weird devices into their bodies, lovesick people are told 'it's not them, it's you', hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seprum's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Seprum is ranked 65,477th in the world and 44th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,800.37 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
