The Nothing Gold Can Stay of Severisen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Septenary with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, zero percent divorce rate, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 14.521 billion Sevvies 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aelholt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.3%.

The frighteningly efficient sevish economy, worth a remarkable 1,534 trillion Shades a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 105,646 Shades, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 493,097 per year while the poor average 13,548, a ratio of 36.4 to 1.

School children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices, the well-off amuse themselves by organizing upstairs-downstairs stories within their second homes, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, and residents firmly believe there is no spoon (Severisen has found 6 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Severisen's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Severisen is ranked 27,603rd in the world and 1,418th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 84.39 Years.
