The Diarchal Expedition Enclave of Sanctuary Point is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Abbess Rising Flame with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.999 billion Novumequines are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Equis. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Diarchal economy, worth a remarkable 1,379 trillion Bits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,131 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Patriots insist that size does matter, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, Abbess Rising Flame's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, and government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanctuary Point's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Diarchism.

Sanctuary Point is ranked 162,363rd in the world and 62nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Rudest Citizens, with 38.55 Insults Per Minute.
