The United Socialist States of Sinelona is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.312 billion Sinelonans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sinelona City. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sinelonan economy, worth 170 trillion Opals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 129,710 Opals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sinelona's national animal is the Mourning Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sinelona is ranked 4,776th in the world and 269th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.18 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
