The Seid

Population21.415 billion

Capitalour brains


The Hivemind of The Seid is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by everyone with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, cheerful population of 21.415 billion minds enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Social Policy, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of our brains. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Seidian economy, worth a remarkable 8,214 trillion thoughts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 383,578 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Even immigrants complain that immigrants keep taking their jobs, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown. The Seid's national animal is the individual, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is us.

The Seid is ranked 2,099th in the world and 57th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 66.82 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
