The Second Foundation of Seldon and the Psychohistorians is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hari Seldon with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.112 billion Seldon and the Psychohistoriansians 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trantor. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Seldon and the Psychohistoriansian economy, worth 489 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,225 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Calisthenics is a well-known tax-dodging technique, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and a the South Pacific Tourist Association survey has rated Seldon and the Psychohistorians #1 for number twos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seldon and the Psychohistorians's national animal is the Dodo Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Seldon and the Psychohistorians is ranked 1,320th in the world and 194th in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 117 Valid Endorsements.
