The Commonwealth of SanctuaryHill is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by High Lords of Terra with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 971 million SanctuaryHillians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Healthcare, although Education, Welfare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. The average income tax rate is 31.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong SanctuaryHillian economy, worth 75.6 trillion Caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,872 Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, war criminals are given full state funerals, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, and children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. SanctuaryHill's national animal is the Brahmin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SanctuaryHill is ranked 120,552nd in the world and 5,972nd in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 46.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
