The Democratic Republic of Succedania is a massive, safe nation, notable for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.587 billion Succedanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meira. The average income tax rate is 53.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Succedanian economy, worth 180 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,717 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Succedania's national animal is the lobster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Succedania is ranked 193,555th in the world and 2,310th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 37 on the Rand Index.
