The Federation of United Islands of The Sea is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 539 million United Islands of The Seans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Titan. The average income tax rate is 60.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving United Islands of The Sean economy, worth 49.6 trillion Islandeer a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 92,071 Islandeer, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Leader claims to be the epitome of family values, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Islands of The Sea's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

United Islands of The Sea is ranked 18,297th in the world and 37th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,464.44 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
