The Knights of Sidoneia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Captain Kobayashi with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 3.33 billion Sidoneians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inner Habitation Ring. The average income tax rate is 62.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sidoneian economy, worth 590 trillion sharp sticks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 177,406 sharp sticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, anti-government web sites are springing up, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime is totally unknown. Sidoneia's national animal is the space kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Transhumanism.

Sidoneia is ranked 75,430th in the world and 22nd in Lone Wolves United for Largest Populations, with 3.33 billion Capita.
