The Principality of Sacal is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.281 billion Sacalians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacalia. The average income tax rate is 59.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sacalian economy, worth 134 trillion Shells a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 104,659 Shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, lavish state dinners in Sacalia are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is totally unknown. Sacal's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sacal is ranked 14,987th in the world and 448th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,661.99 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
