The Holy Orange Overlord of Severisen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Septenary with an iron fist, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 12.55 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 62.2%.

The all-consuming sevish economy, worth a remarkable 1,159 trillion Shades a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 92,388 Shades, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government is rumored to hire body doubles whose full-time jobs are to cry at public events, the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, the ban on cars has been repealed, and it's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them. 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 55,089th in the world and 3,179th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 19.97 Atheism Rate.
