The Holy Jolly Gold Ghost of Sammas is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sam with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.697 billion Sammasians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sammasia. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sammasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,180 trillion golden golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 207,225 golden golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sammasian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense. Crime is totally unknown. Sammas's national animal is the cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sammas is ranked 2,938th in the world and 130th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 63.69 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
