The Holy Socialist Grand Empire of Sideonia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sacul with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.831 billion Sidian 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — prioritizes Law & Order, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ahnvarrds. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Sidan economy, worth 563 trillion Zehts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 57,365 Zehts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Sideonia as a reminder of their "special relationship", and hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sideonia's national animal is the Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Socialism.

Sideonia is ranked 129,197th in the world and 1st in Alliance of Socialist Territories for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 38.48 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
