The Republic of -SARS- is a massive, pleasant nation, ruled by SARS with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 2.035 billion SARS viruses are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Public Transport are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corona. The average income tax rate is 32.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped SARS economy, worth 61.3 trillion host cells a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,124 host cells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and SARS is the self-declared God of all -SARS-. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -SARS-'s national animal is the civet and its national religion is pneumonia.

-SARS- is ranked 130,922nd in the world and 3,593rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 229.87 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
