Sanctum and Ultima

Population278 million

CapitalIvâr Oðīrdix


The United States of Sanctum and Ultima is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 278 million Činovidatărvaltsăr love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Defense, and Welfare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivâr Oðīrdix. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Činovidatărvalts economy, worth 18.0 trillion kirvens a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,913 kirvens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story, the government has declared that monochrome cinema is the next big thing, drive-by spoilers are an increasingly common crime, and frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanctum and Ultima's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sanctum and Ultima is ranked 136,694th in the world and 7,425th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -10.31 on the Hayek Index.
