The Protectorate of Sardonyx EE is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, prohibition of alcohol, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.707 billion Sardonyx EEians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.7%.

The strong Sardonyx EEian economy, worth 100 trillion Krystal Koins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,068 Krystal Koins, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is infamous for its mass graves of discarded robots, teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence, and genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sardonyx EE's national animal is the Pink Lion.

Sardonyx EE is ranked 138,438th in the world and 50th in House Elegarth for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.37 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
