The Queendom of Sarotte is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by RB Toretto with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 20.199 billion Sarotteans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vetter. The average income tax rate is 100%. 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.

Government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and island residents must resort to canoes and sailboats to get to work. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sarotte's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is the Cult of Personality, and its currency is the vin.

Sarotte is ranked 3rd in Lazarus and 153rd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 338 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
