The Too Much Chocolate Cake of Sakana is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, rampant corporate plagiarism, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.372 billion Sakanans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Environment, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A Dinner Party For All The Friends. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.1%.

The all-consuming Sakanan economy, worth 145 trillion Fish a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 61,401 Fish, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 227,126 per year while the poor average 11,695, a ratio of 19.4 to 1.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", the people of Sakana are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes, citizens have never heard foreign radio, and voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Sakana's national animal is the Stuffie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Staying Up Too Late Waltzing.

Sakana is ranked 154,314th in the world and 300th in The Black Hawks for Most Authoritarian, with 534.44 milliStalins.
