The Protectorate of Sitiawan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tun Lim Koon Tao with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, devout population of 7.023 billion Sitiawanians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manjung Cove. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sitiawanian economy, worth 411 trillion Pheahs a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,612 Pheahs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', and expensive show trials reveal the harshness of the nation's justice system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sitiawan's national animal is the Gajah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Jesus.

Sitiawan is ranked 127,864th in the world and 17th in Emery for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
