The Empire of Sagis is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Altan Nygard with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.15 billion Sagisians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karlath. The average income tax rate is 62.1%.
The Sagisian economy, worth 84.9 trillion Isoleses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 73,824 Isoleses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.
Reddish-brown is the new black, Sagisians must literally pay their respects to hear from their political representatives, parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sagis's national animal is the Dolphin.
