“Freedom is never truly free unless you work for it.”

The Incorporated States of Sarzonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Nicole Lewis with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The democratic, cheerful population of 21.46 billion Sarzonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Social Policy, although Education is also considered important, while Spirituality and Healthcare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woodstock. Income tax is unheard of.
The all-consuming Sarzonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,354 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 202,934 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, military spending is on the increase, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy. Crime is totally unknown. Sarzonia's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is no religion.
