The Spacefaring Federation of Sacara is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Astronaut with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.94 billion Sacarians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westrock Station. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Sacarian economy, worth a remarkable 4,162 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 298,627 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,416,894 per year while the poor average 37,142, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, cute fluffy little The Astronauts are increasingly popular exotic pets, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sacara's national animal is the courageous monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Sacara is ranked 244,775th in the world and 267th in Lands End for Most Income Equality, scoring 2.62 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
