The Free Land of Saimatsu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Maeve III with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.519 billion Saimatsuans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bakashi. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saimatsuan economy, worth 175 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,256 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism, spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saimatsu's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Saimatsu is ranked 9,044th in the world and 510th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 87.54 Years.
