The Federation of Saarkon is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 985 million Saarkonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, 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 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saarkonian economy, worth 128 trillion saarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 130,353 saarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, the Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, and the Saarkon City Film Festival recently voted 'Saarkonian Getting Hit By Football' as best film. Crime is totally unknown. Saarkon's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Saarkon is ranked 31,851st in the world and 170th in Europeia for Rudest Citizens, with 74.02 Insults Per Minute.
