The Republic of Saganea is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Carl Sagan with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.274 billion Saganeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cygnus A. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Saganean economy, worth 377 trillion ∆vs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 40,654 ∆vs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, the government funds large training centres to turn Tribbles into functioning members of society, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and Carl Sagan has just been declared ruler of Saganea in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saganea's national animal is the Tribble, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saganea is ranked 218,104th in the world and 2nd in The Pale Blue Region for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.17 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
