The Free Lands of Selenetica is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Selena with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, free-roaming dinosaurs, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.009 billion Seleneticans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HMS Alliance. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Selenetican economy, worth 995 trillion Boluts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 55,255 Boluts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and citizens have to dodge their neighbor's drones while getting the morning paper. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Selenetica's national animal is the sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Selenetica is ranked 91,129th in the world and 3,931st in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 180.44 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
