The Democratic Socialist Union of Sauros is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Challenger with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.068 billion Saurosians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Walkeri. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Saurosian economy, worth 152 trillion Saurosian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 73,572 Saurosian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, prison visits increase substantially during election years, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sauros's national animal is the Tyrannosaurus Rex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Sauros is ranked 34,277th in the world and 171st in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 72.8 on the Human Development Index.
