East Sakhlin

Population29 million


The Grand Duchy of East Sakhlin is a small, safe nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 29 million Sakhlinians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 30.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The East Sakhlinian economy, worth 1.49 trillion Saks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,495 Saks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, millions of devastated 7-year-olds are denied astronaut and ballerina training, prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, and supervisors in East Sakhlin commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Sakhlin's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Sakhlin is ranked 137,037th in the world and 4,523rd in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1.49 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
