The Eques Imperatoria of Sulenia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Imperator Sublime Cadia with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.2 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 83.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Sulenian economy, worth 483 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 219,587 Galerios, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. 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 54,578th in the world and 451st in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,785.54 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
