“Unity, Courage, Hope”

Regional Influence: Handshaker
The Empire of Saconian is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Karl I with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed population of 9.714 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palatinus. The average income tax rate is 100%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.
Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saconian's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Crown.
