The Armed Republic of Sanctityville is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its closed borders, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 252 million Sanctitians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sanctityvillean economy, worth 28.4 trillion New Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 112,659 New Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 519,786 per year while the poor average 14,759, a ratio of 35.2 to 1.

The commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Sanctityville with a very polite populace, crop circles are intently studied by investigators with questionable merits, heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, and the nation's entire cultural heritage is being auctioned off to the rich. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Sanctityville's national animal is the White Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sanctityville is ranked 162,493rd in the world and 9,035th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 5 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
