The Republic of New Sap Oesan is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 36 million New Sap Oesanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 39.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Sap Oesanian economy, worth 1.32 trillion guilders a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,750 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Going on a diet invalidates your passport, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians, and one of the most popular models in New Sap Oesan has a scarred face and one working eye. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Sap Oesan's national animal is the kangaroo.

New Sap Oesan is ranked 155,872nd in the world and 106th in Refugia for Most Primitive, scoring -79.26 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
