The Holy Orange Overlord of Severisen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Septenary with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 12.704 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 63.6%.

The all-consuming sevish economy, worth a remarkable 1,164 trillion Shades a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 91,636 Shades, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, the ban on cars has been repealed, it's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Severisen's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Severisen is ranked 30,551st in the world and 1,454th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,977.84 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
