Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population5.416 billion



The Democratic Republic of Saugeria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by PRESIDENT ADNAN YAKUBU UMAR with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.416 billion Saugerians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riyabuja. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saugerian economy, worth 588 trillion Rinais 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 Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 108,614 Rinais, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, reddish-brown is the new black, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saugeria's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is ISLAM.

Saugeria is ranked 27,517th in the world and 1,292nd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 108,614.79 Standard Monetary Units.
