The Commonwealth of SanctuaryHill is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Lords of Terra with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.603 billion 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. The average income tax rate is 34.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong SanctuaryHillian economy, worth 125 trillion Caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,071 Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Cap battlesuits, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. 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 55,128th in the world and 2,675th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,485.81 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
