The Fishy Imperial Stratocracy of Sebatopia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Sea Bass with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.655 billion Sebatopians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fishyville. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Sebatopian economy, worth a remarkable 2,032 trillion Fishbuxes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 436,566 Fishbuxes, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes, major cities run on potato batteries, returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Sebatopia's national animal is the Lake Trout, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Church of Sea Bass.

Sebatopia is ranked 1,424th in the world and 50th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 17.74 Weapons Per Person.
