The Republic of Sak622 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.011 billion Sak622ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 37.2%.

The sizeable but inefficient Sak622ian economy, worth 42.4 trillion chips a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,889 chips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sak622's national animal is the sloth.

Sak622 is ranked 154,351st in the world and 2,008th in The City of Ba Sing Se for Nudest, with 96 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
