The Divine Federation of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Charlene Hendry with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 18.895 billion Sanctarians 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 enormous government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Sanctarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,829 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is 96,823 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, and motels cater primarily to adulterers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanctaria's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Sanctaria.

Sanctaria is ranked 6,548th in the world and 21st in International Democratic Union for Highest Economic Output, with 1,829 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
