The Community of Sahbido is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 593 million Sahbidoans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sahbidoan economy, worth 22.0 trillion francs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 37,147 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Sahbido's radio stations, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sahbido's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sahbido is ranked 70,392nd in the world and 2,858th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 82 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
