The Grand Kingdom of Seythennia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Grand King Castor I with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.083 billion Seythennians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Vincent. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Seythennian economy, worth 983 trillion Seythennian gold dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,656 Seythennian gold dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Grand King Castor I For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Grand King Castor I's supporters, politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, and young girls often attend the same schools as their children. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Neo-Zoroastrian Last Thursdayism.

Seythennia is ranked 8,776th in the world and 603rd in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 4,243 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
