The Pacific Alpine Commonwealth of Mount Seymour is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Nathaniel Gardiner with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.741 billion Seymourians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort-Frédéric-sur-le-Montagne. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The enormous but sluggish Seymourian economy, worth a remarkable 1,090 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 65,112 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, one does not simply walk into the tundra, the big red machine has ground to a halt, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mount Seymour's national animal is the purple-spotted newt, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Seymourian humanistic naturalism.

Mount Seymour is ranked 278,480th in the world and 307th in Forest for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -10.45 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
