The Divine Federation of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Ethan Ringrose with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 28.278 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, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sanctarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,745 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,092 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motels cater primarily to adulterers, voting is voluntary, residents firmly believe there is no spoon (Sanctaria has found 4 easter eggs), and the Random Number Gods do play dice with the universe (Sanctaria has found 4 easter eggs). 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 284,449th in the world and 85th in International Democratic Union for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -9.59 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
