The Precious Gemnation of Sfalezrilhe is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Magaly Darklight with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.335 billion Sfalezrilheans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sfaleritia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sfalezrilhean economy, worth a remarkable 1,370 trillion Sphalerites a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 256,809 Sphalerites, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime is totally unknown. Sfalezrilhe's national animal is the Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cult of Books.

Sfalezrilhe is ranked 5,446th in the world and 48th in Jeinnhezslhaunia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 533.64 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
