The Borderlands of Sarekono is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 282 million Sarekoes enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Defense, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 12.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Sarekonoan economy, worth 16.2 trillion Renoris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 57,505 Renoris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Sarekoes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sarekono's national animal is the Nightingale, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sarekono is ranked 64,161st in the world and 2,708th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,466.61 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
