The Elite State of Sandboxford is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sakura Miko with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.406 billion Mikopis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Shrine. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mikopi economy, worth 450 trillion yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 187,066 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, replacement organs are grown in vats, and undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected. Crime is totally unknown. Sandboxford's national animal is the Shikigami, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sandboxford is ranked 115,529th in the world and 4,857th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 20.24 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
