The Holy Empire of Sankami is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by High Sovereign Shintai with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.515 billion Sankamians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taiyo Shinkai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Sankamian economy, worth a remarkable 1,213 trillion tokins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 186,332 tokins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 538,086 per year while the poor average 51,192, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.
Strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, babysitters are a thing of the past, foreign students are expected to have a Kegmeister Grade Average of 36-24-36 to qualify for university, and former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sankami's national animal is the Tribune Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Deirtri.
