The Holy Empire of Great Sand and Cuvco is a huge, pleasant nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 290 million Oceanicans 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Spirituality, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Industry are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cuvco. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The Oceanic economy, worth 20.9 trillion Oceanic Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 72,080 Oceanic Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and Mr Happy's Funland has just been named Great Sand and Cuvco's new capital. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Great Sand and Cuvco's national animal is the Fire Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Great Sand and Cuvco is ranked 114,073rd in the world and 93rd in St Abbaddon for Most Primitive, scoring -94.66 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
