The Grand Kingdom of Seythennia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Grand King Castor I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.355 billion Seythennians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Vincent. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Seythennian economy, worth 789 trillion Seythennian gold dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,516 Seythennian gold dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and men stare at wall-pictures of Grand King Castor I's face when they visit public urinals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seythennia's national animal is the kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eastern Neo-Zoroastrian Last Thursdayism.

Seythennia is ranked 151,133rd in the world and 7,097th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 46.16 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
