The United Socialist States of Sinelona is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Felix Angevin with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.873 billion Sinelonans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sinelona City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sinelonan economy, worth 275 trillion Opals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 147,269 Opals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skateparks can be found in every city, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", the government funds large training centres to turn Mourning Doves into functioning members of society, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sinelona's national animal is the Mourning Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sinelona is ranked 18,897th in the world and 811th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,472.66 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
