The Thalassocracy of Seven Seas is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Drake Nemo Sparrow with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.675 billion Mariners have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Portland. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nautical economy, worth 247 trillion Calypsoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Retail. Average income is 92,559 Calypsoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, and practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seven Seas's national animal is the Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Seven Seas is ranked 231,483rd in the world and 32nd in Lorania for Fattest Citizens, with 5.6 Obesity Rate.
