The Confederacy of Selanna is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 164 million Selannans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Selannan economy, worth 2.27 trillion Cosmic Love Degrees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 13,814 Cosmic Love Degrees, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, workers have seized control of the economy, and the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Selanna's national animal is the Black Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Selanna is ranked 150,344th in the world and 7,534th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 41.87 on the Human Development Index.
