The Fishy Imperial Dictatorship of Sebatopia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fish King Sea Bass with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.202 billion Sebatopians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fishyville. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sebatopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,243 trillion Fishbuxes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 388,383 Fishbuxes, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Sebatopians any less frightened, and a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Sebatopia's national animal is the Lake Trout, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Church of Sea Bass.

Sebatopia is ranked 95,768th in the world and 3,891st in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 2.92 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
