The Commonwealth of SanctuaryHill is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 310 million SanctuaryHillians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. The average income tax rate is 21.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong SanctuaryHillian economy, worth 24.0 trillion Caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,408 Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and SanctuaryHill has designated Boston as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. SanctuaryHill's national animal is the Brahmin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SanctuaryHill is ranked 30,740th in the world and 1,463rd in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 48,091.76 Standard Monetary Units.
