The Kingdom of Notre Sagessee is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Izana II with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.283 billion Sagessens 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Notre Sagesse. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.7%.

The strong Sagessen economy, worth 104 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 45,901 Kroner, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

The diplomatic corps stinks, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Notre Sagessee's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is State Shintoism.

Notre Sagessee is ranked 29,653rd in the world and 677th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,753.27 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
