The ABOMINATION of Sandboxford is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by BakuDAN with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.299 billion Sandboxfordians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Truth or Consequences. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sandboxfordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,389 trillion monies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 262,175 monies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fistfighting vigilantes tend to suffer a lot of gunshot wounds, thousands of former pirates can be found peddling knockoff products in flea markets, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and pet rocks are sold by the pound. Crime is totally unknown. Sandboxford's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sandboxford is ranked 12,376th in the world and 180th in The East Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 8,138.14 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
