The Chronosynclastic Infundibulm of Sadakoyama is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Council of Sciencemasters with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 14.452 billion Sadakhan hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ys. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sadakhan economy, worth a remarkable 2,848 trillion VHS tapes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 197,117 VHS tapes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, and textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be. 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 3,856th in the world and 174th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 578.46 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
