The Hivemind of The Seid is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by everyone with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.229 billion minds 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 large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of our brains. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Seidian economy, worth an astonishing 12,882 trillion thoughts 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 456,340 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, snitches get riches, only the fast and the furious are brave enough to drive, and the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy. Crime is totally unknown. The Seid's national animal is the individual, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is us.

The Seid is ranked 24th in the world and 1st in Refugia for Smartest Citizens, with 551.95 quips per hour.
