The Holy Empire of Sigmalandia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 441 million Sigmas have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 12.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sigma economy, worth 37.4 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 84,907 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, and a spate of enforced closures has left 'Government FM' as the nation's only radio station. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sigmalandia's national animal is the human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sigmalandia is ranked 108,712th in the world and 3,846th in the Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 65 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
