The Yellow Sailing Boat of Sail Nation is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Nobody Knows with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.538 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 enormous government 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 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sail economy, worth 121 trillion Knots a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,068 Knots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The price of freedom is about half a million Knots, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, the study of medicine is popular throughout Sail Nation, and most Sailors would sell their own grandmother. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sail Nation's national animal is the Swallow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Sail Nation is ranked 216,039th in the world and 81st in Lorania for Rudest Citizens, with 8.54 Insults Per Minute.
