The United Republic of Saigonsin is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jaxon Towns with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.947 billion Saigoes are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saiport. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Saigonsinian economy, worth 843 trillion dollars 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 106,152 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and the only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saigonsin's national animal is the redhawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Saigonsin is ranked 139,711th in the world and 4,951st in Balder for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -140.81 on the Hayek Index.
