The Community of Sahbido is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 872 million Sahbidoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Sahbidoan economy, worth 60.6 trillion francs 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 69,539 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, S-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, and the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sahbido's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sahbido is ranked 138,710th in the world and 3,356th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 60.6 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
