Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Republic of Saarund is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chairman Gidsson with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.081 billion Saarundians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brykkær. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saarundian economy, worth 501 trillion venyrs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,788 venyrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, divorce lawyers are found begging on the streets, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused. Crime is totally unknown. Saarund's national animal is the white tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Saarund is ranked 1,160th in The Communist Bloc and 137,373rd in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -247 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
