The Eques Imperatoria of Sulenia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Imperator Sublime Cadia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, prohibition of alcohol, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.213 billion Sulenians 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salen. The average income tax rate is 83.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sulenian economy, worth 486 trillion Galerios a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 220,030 Galerios, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Salen, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, serial killers are the country's biggest import, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sulenia's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Secularism.

Sulenia is ranked 22,067th in the world and 138th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,374.47 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
