The Holy Empire of Selven is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm von Wermarn-Arnburg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 13.684 billion Bunische 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Selvensburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.8%.

The powerhouse Selvenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,021 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 74,674 Pound Sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

No-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Selven's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Selven is ranked 171,148th in the world and 32nd in New Reich of Bunicken for Rudest Citizens, with 31.21 Insults Per Minute.
