The Territories of The Territories of Sealand is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Little Brother with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.615 billion Sealanders 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brunswick. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sealandian economy, worth 278 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 172,638 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Territories of Sealand's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sealandian Loudness.

The Territories of Sealand is ranked 243,279th in the world and 1,861st in 10000 Islands for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.76 crimes per hour.
