The United Socialist States of Saphixia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by SupremeOverlord Joshua the Mighty with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed population of 3.985 billion Saphixians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jinx. The average income tax rate is 55.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saphixian economy, worth 621 trillion Saphs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,932 Saphs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The minority party is vilified for everything from fires to earthquakes, no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Saphixia, and owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saphixia is ranked 82,714th in the world and 4,368th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,406.91 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
