The Philosophical Empire of Sacara is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dakota Hayward with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.647 billion Sacarians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westrock. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Sacarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,697 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 255,335 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,489,703 per year while the poor average 20,607, a ratio of 72.3 to 1.

Builders across Sacara are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Westrock, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sacara's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Sacara is ranked 4,026th in the world and 47th in Forest for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 81.27 Workforce Participation Rate.
