The Modern Liberal Democracy of Sail Nation is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Somebody with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.506 billion Sailors 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boatopia. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saili economy, worth 192 trillion Knots a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,777 Knots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, the new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sail Nation's national animal is the Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Sail Nation is ranked 7,982nd in the world and 3rd in Lorania for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,666.7 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
