The Amaranthine High Princedom of Sahsahlah is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the fâlthaiksha Thekanfen Copalesef with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.32 billion sâdeh'li enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Administration and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thêrebe. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient sâh'li economy, worth a remarkable 2,134 trillion ièirs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 160,227 ièirs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, late night adverts for breast milk co-ops regularly win pornography industry awards, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, and the national water supply has entered detox. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sahsahlah's national animal is the barn owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Oshâlashîaras.

Sahsahlah is ranked 376th in the world and 1st in I E C A for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
