The Knights of Sidoneia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Captain Kobayashi with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 3.499 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 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sidoneian economy, worth 629 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 179,862 sharp sticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, and seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma. 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 129,720th in the world and 45th in Lone Wolves United for Most Stationary, with 94.3741062672 Days.
