The Pandemic Suppression Efforts of The Saar Commune is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Oskar Lafontaine with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.939 billion Sarrois are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saarbrücken. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sarrois economy, worth 382 trillion Saar Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 130,146 Saar Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape The Saar Commune, the government is funneling billions into Cape The Saar Commune following the shuttle crash, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Saar Commune's national animal is the Swine, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Atheism.

The Saar Commune is ranked 33,033rd in the world and 11th in Deutschland for Most Influential, scoring 891 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
