Sandhill

The Free Land of Sandhill is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 230 million Sandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The thriving Sandian economy, worth 21.1 trillion continentals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 91,653 continentals, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 569,855 per year while the poor average 6,323, a ratio of 90.1 to 1.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sandhill's national animal is the rattlesnake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sandhill is ranked 6,991st in the world and 5th in New West Indies for Most Avoided, scoring 358.82 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
