The Oil Painted Joy of Saganye is a massive, safe nation, ruled by the Neighbourly Scientist with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.616 billion Saganyehilists are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mr Roger's Neighbourhood. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Saganyehilist economy, worth a remarkable 1,235 trillion kind words a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 267,615 kind words, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, and they say that Saganyehilists made a dessert and called it peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saganye's national animal is the friendliest critter you'll ever meet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is sorry for the inconvenience.

Saganye is ranked 170,743rd in the world and 7,582nd in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 1 Obesity Rate.
