The Federation of Saarkon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Kleben Wessek with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.842 billion Saarkonians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saarkon City. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saarkonian economy, worth 301 trillion saarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 163,809 saarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signs of extraterrestrial life are just foreign astronauts evading Saarkonian justice, an alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of Saarkon City, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, and Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community. Crime is totally unknown. Saarkon's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Saarkon is ranked 1,960th in the world and 26th in Europeia for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 76.13 Bank.
