The Chronosynclastic Infundibulm of Sadakoyama is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Council of Sciencemasters with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 16.659 billion Sadakhan 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 medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ys. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Sadakhan economy, worth a remarkable 3,529 trillion VHS tapes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 211,890 VHS tapes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned slimy thing with legsball fields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sadakoyama's national animal is the slimy thing with legs, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sadakoyama is ranked 1,858th in the world and 85th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.35 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
