The Hivemind of The Seid is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by everyone with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.492 billion minds are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Defense, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. 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 an astonishing 11,666 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 440,362 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unemployed mercenaries drift the country looking for new careers, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', the latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. 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 305,072nd in the world and 657th in Refugia for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 2.31 Whatever.
