The Nothing Gold Can Stay of Severisen is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Septenary with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 13.108 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 55.2%.

The frighteningly efficient sevish economy, worth a remarkable 1,379 trillion Shades a year, is broadly 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 105,233 Shades, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 314,758 per year while the poor average 27,515, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, school history books often refer to Septenary as "that imperialist pig dog", cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, and ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Severisen's national animal is the Phoenix.

Severisen is ranked 128,186th in the world and 6,944th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 8.98 on the Hayek Index.
