The Republic of Free Peoples Republic of Sandir is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Edyn Kerlogg with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 996 million Sandirians 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, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tebenahg's Hold. The average income tax rate is 38.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Sandirian economy, worth 109 trillion Krashmecs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 109,783 Krashmecs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. Crime is totally unknown. Free Peoples Republic of Sandir's national animal is the Camel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Free Peoples Republic of Sandir is ranked 138,214th in the world and 5,296th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.11 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
