The Lesbian Empire of Sessnia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Helle with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.873 billion Cessnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Spirituality, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dariss. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.7%.

The strong Sessnian economy, worth 316 trillion Tallons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 81,612 Tallons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 275,287 per year while the poor average 17,910, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, AIs make up a majority of the long-term warehouse population, the government seizes the property of the recently deceased, and citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sessnia's national animal is the Elk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sessnia is ranked 89,463rd in the world and 33rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,440.6 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
