The Republic of Sak590 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed population of 1.044 billion Sak590ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.7%.

The strong Sak590ian economy, worth 66.1 trillion chips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,316 chips, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, the dartboard at the Sak590ian Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Leader's face, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, and traffic cops are puzzled to see that nobody exceeds the speed limits. Crime is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Sak590's national animal is the sloth, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Sak590 is ranked 130,206th in the world and 2,180th in The City of Ba Sing Se for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 183.9 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
