The United Socialist States of Sinelona is a huge, genial nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 780 million Sinelonans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sinelona City. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sinelonan economy, worth 80.3 trillion Opals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 102,989 Opals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and endangered species are effective hostages against the Sinelonan military. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sinelona's national animal is the Mourning Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sinelona is ranked 5,964th in the world and 303rd in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 96.96 Atheism Rate.
