Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Sprat


The Free Land of Siatin is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 257 million Siatinians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 32.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Siatinian economy, worth 18.0 trillion Siatiners a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,230 Siatiners, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, the Siatin City Film Festival recently voted 'Siatinian Getting Hit By Football' as best film, and summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police. Crime is totally unknown. Siatin's national animal is the Scorpio, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Siatin is ranked 67,075th in the world and 2,339th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 38.24 quips per hour.
