Seven Seas

Population1.344 billion

CapitalNew Portland
LeaderCaptain Drake Nemo Sparrow


The Fishy Factions of Seven Seas is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Captain Drake Nemo Sparrow with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.344 billion Mariners have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Portland. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nautical economy, worth 120 trillion Calypsoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Retail. Average income is 89,860 Calypsoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seven Seas's national animal is the Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Seven Seas is ranked 42,407th in the world and 19th in Lorania for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 677.37 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
