The Constitutional Monarchy of Sandybeach is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Susy Flipflops with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.301 billion Sandis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunstar. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sandybeachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,976 trillion Starfish a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,173 Starfish, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime is totally unknown. Sandybeach's national animal is the Coconut Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Sand and Surf.

Sandybeach is ranked 205,505th in the world and 434th in NationStates for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -25.81 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
