The Mana Source of Mox Sapphire is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by MrSapphire with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, strictly enforced bedtime, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.629 billion Mox Sapphireans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SapphireCity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Mox Sapphirean economy, worth a remarkable 3,629 trillion manas a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,784 manas, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, grannies with arthritic hands work miserably on factory production lines, and a PhD just ain't what it used to be. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mox Sapphire's national animal is the manabird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

Mox Sapphire is ranked 219,819th in the world and 111th in Nederland for Most Politically Free, scoring 11.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
