The Pleasant Peace Zone of Sakaba is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kritter with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.574 billion Sakabans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Spirituality, and Social Policy also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saka. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sakaban economy, worth a remarkable 2,852 trillion Credits a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 195,696 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Many marriages go virtually unconsummated, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, towns that stop turning a profit are turned into animal sanctuaries, and judges are all-powerful. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sakaba's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kritterism.

Sakaba is ranked 14,359th in the world and 33rd in Conch Kingdom for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.94 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
