The Rational Republic of Sanden is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Harold Stassen with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.385 billion Sandenians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Notlock City. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Sandenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,076 trillion Shards a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,981 Shards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, loans are available for students from poor families, and all streets are privately owned toll roads. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanden's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Rationalism.
