The Dictatorship of Sidenta is a small, genial nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 23 million Sidentans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The fair Sidentan economy, worth 907 billion Unars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 39,447 Unars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The recent ban on computers is causing havoc throughout the nation, courtrooms can be a little sketchy, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and Leader has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sidenta's national animal is the Spirit Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sidenta is ranked 34,864th in the world and 13th in Refugia for Most Corrupt Governments, with 35.05 Kickbacks Per Hour.
