The Backward Nation of Saipotgnimmel is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 923 million Saipotgnimmelians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 64.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Saipotgnimmelian economy, worth 38.8 trillion Dancing Defenders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 42,088 Dancing Defenders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, and schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saipotgnimmel's national animal is the Devil, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Saipotgnimmel is ranked 202,489th in the world and 300th in The Black Hawks for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 15,151.74 Standard Monetary Units.
