The Holy Empire of Sebastiania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Sebastian Deshayes with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.797 billion Sebastianians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kungaholmen. The average income tax rate is 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sebastianian economy, worth 223 trillion Kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,339 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Sebastiania, the nation's poor can be seen scavenging trash bins for used coffee grounds, and crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sebastiania's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Sebastiania is ranked 157,064th in the world and 3,620th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 110 billion Standard Monetary Units.
