The Divine Republic of Sanctaria is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mark Kindle with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.457 billion, 6.393 billion of whom are zombies, Sanctarians 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', a flood of mandatory divorces burden the courts, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanctaria's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Catholicism, and its currency is the pound.

Sanctaria is ranked 77th in International Democratic Union and 107,438th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Sanctaria is currently researching a cure.
