The People's Republic of Sandessal is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rashad Egen with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.89 billion Sandessalians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itotstad. The average income tax rate is 41.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sandessali economy, worth 70.3 trillion Nivers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,192 Nivers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, major boxing matches are held in government buildings, people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sandessal's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Freedom of Religion.

Sandessal is ranked 129,873rd in the world and 2,225th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 70.3 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
