The Fempire of Sessnia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Helle with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.68 billion Cessnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Spirituality, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dariss. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.4%.

The strong Sessnian economy, worth 387 trillion Tallons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 82,724 Tallons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 285,764 per year while the poor average 17,514, a ratio of 16.3 to 1.

Major cities run on potato batteries, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, high school bands practice by moonlight, and street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sessnia's national animal is the Elk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sessnia is ranked 162,719th in the world and 93rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 29.93 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
