The United Socialist States of Saphixia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by SupremeOverlord Joshua the Mighty with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed population of 5.686 billion Saphixians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jinx. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Saphixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,034 trillion Saphs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 181,976 Saphs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Saphixians any less frightened, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", and increasing numbers of children in Saphixia have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saphixia's national animal is the Cock, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
