The Commonwealth of Segentova is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief of State Pierre Delacroix with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 9.942 billion Segentovans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nouveau Toulon. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The strong Segen economy, worth 961 trillion Segentovan Livres a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,751 Segentovan Livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Film studios own the rights to actors' likenesses until the next millennium, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, and video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Segentova's national animal is the Wild Segentovan Tarasque Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Segen National Reformed Church.

Segentova is ranked 206,325th in the world and 159th in The Western Isles for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -12.63 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
