The Empire of Sevevill is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Joseph Henry with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, aversion to nipples, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.602 billion Sevevillians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seve City. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Sevevillian economy, worth a remarkable 1,053 trillion Seves a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,758 Seves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Racial supremacists indulge their wildest fantasies in cinemas and theatres across the nation, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, and the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sevevill's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic.

Sevevill is ranked 81,440th in the world and 19th in Markion for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,183.89 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
