The Covenant of Sanctissima is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 7.848 billion Sanctari are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Domina. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The Sanctis economy, worth 757 trillion Domins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 96,578 Domins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Cops with assault weaponry are forcing their way into private homes to search for terrorists, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanctissima's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ascensia.

Sanctissima is ranked 67,267th in the world and 1,545th in the Rejected Realms for Most Average, scoring 40.51 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
