The Supreme Christmas Lands of Lord Sapre is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mr Doctor Professor Lord King Sir Sapre with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.074 billion Lord Sapreans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arstotzka. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Lord Saprean economy, worth a remarkable 2,677 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 295,072 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, passengers often cause a stink on public transport, and a surprisingly large share of the nation's budget is used to buy new houses for immigrants. Crime is totally unknown. Lord Sapre's national animal is the vampire, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Protestant.

Lord Sapre is ranked 270,058th in the world and 1,252nd in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -951.73 on the Hayek Index.
