The Divine Federation of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Charlene Hendry with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 19.612 billion Sanctarians 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 enormous government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. The average income tax rate is 77.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sanctarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,899 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is 96,862 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, motels cater primarily to adulterers, and voting is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanctaria's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Sanctaria.

Sanctaria is ranked 56,357th in the world and 61st in International Democratic Union for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 66.71 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
