The Federal Republic of Senshen is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Guy Casper van Hobbstadt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.913 billion Senshians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mese. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Senshenian economy, worth 106 trillion Mese a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Book Publishing. Average income is 55,578 Mese, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Guy Casper van Hobbstadt spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other, and Guy Casper van Hobbstadt has just been declared ruler of Senshen in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Senshen's national animal is the Komnenos Buzzard-Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Senshen is ranked 179,505th in the world and 263rd in Anteria for Fattest Citizens, with 9.07 Obesity Rate.
