The Free Land of Sagostas is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 712 million Sagostasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Sagostasian economy, worth 26.8 trillion deniers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,679 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
The "give and take" of international diplomacy often happens at gunpoint, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and Sagostas has designated Sagostas City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sagostas's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
