The Queen's State of Sable Island is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.911 billion Sable Islanders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Sable Islandian economy, worth 657 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 50,888 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and euthanasia is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sable Island's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Sable Island is ranked 204,241st in the world and 7th in Nova Scotia for Most Politically Free, scoring zero on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
