The Divine Republic of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mark Kindle with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 15.849 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sanctarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,510 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 95,317 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, and the government is avowedly secular. 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 Catholicism.

Sanctaria is ranked 23,158th in the world and 53rd in International Democratic Union for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 186.29 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
