The Republic of Sebek is a huge, safe nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 307 million Sebekians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sebekian economy, worth 9.49 trillion Debens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,919 Debens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, the nation's endangered species are no longer endangered, and professional athletes can't see balls amid the deluge of advertisements. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sebek's national animal is the Crocodile, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Sebek is ranked 56,921st in the world and 2,371st in Balder for Most Pacifist, with 89.34 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
