The United Kingdom of Sasten is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Renadt II with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 19.728 billion Sastennites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azarai. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sastennic economy, worth a remarkable 7,576 trillion Ezrets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 384,031 Ezrets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, it isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions, and internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Sastennic weed picker are way up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sasten's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Sasten is ranked 24,999th in the world and 1,006th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,752.74 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
