The Syndicate of Sigma Iotia II is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Bela Oxmyx with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.116 billion Bosses are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sigma Iotia economy, worth 559 trillion Heaters a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 109,320 Heaters, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 463,860 per year while the poor average 16,618, a ratio of 27.9 to 1.

School lockers are filled with fancy underwear, all you have to do is pray to get into Sigma Iotia II, sheep-like political loyalists repeat the mantra "one wheel bad, three wheels good", and the government takes agricultural advice from a wasp-themed superhero. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sigma Iotia II's national animal is the Gangster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Chicago Mobs of the Twenties.

Sigma Iotia II is ranked 180,746th in the world and 101st in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring zero on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
