Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Commonwealth of Sandwich Territories is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Brian I with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The devout population of 7.925 billion Sandwichians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waterford. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sandwichian economy, worth 704 trillion Sandwichian Sterlings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,944 Sandwichian Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, discarded pennies litter the streets, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sandwich Territories's national animal is the Sandwichian Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is the Sandwichian Church.

Sandwich Territories is ranked 108,201st in the world and 25th in Kennan for Most Authoritarian, with 0.2 Stalins.
