Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Sapien is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Sapienti Executive Council with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 6.163 billion Sapientis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Doctus Civilus. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The large but inefficient Sapienian economy, worth 466 trillion Literas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,634 Literas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, Max Barry is this year's Miss Sapien, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sapien's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Sapien is ranked 2,259th in the world and 66th in Balder for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.8 Years.
