The Divine Federation of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Charlene Hendry with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 22.061 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 Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sanctarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,119 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,074 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

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, motels cater primarily to adulterers, and voting is voluntary. 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 228,586th in the world and 99th in International Democratic Union for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -26.34 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
