The Fishy Imperial Dictatorship of Sebatopia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Fish King Sea Bass with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.181 billion Sebatopians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fishyville. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Sebatopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,232 trillion Fishbuxes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 387,582 Fishbuxes, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, screams of citizens being "re-educated" echo throughout the rural regions of Sebatopia, and Sebatopian junkies argue that poppy stalks are ornamental flowers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Sebatopia's national animal is the Lake Trout, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Church of Sea Bass.

Sebatopia is ranked 24,749th in the world and 996th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,770.92 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
