Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Sandovara is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bavarius Lowther with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 2.043 billion Sandovarans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andromera. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The all-consuming Sandovaran economy, worth 194 trillion Sandorns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 95,316 Sandorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, and only toddlers and the elderly watch television before 23:00. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sandovara's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sandovara is ranked 124,481st in the world and 3,466th in Osiris for Most Stationary, with 18.7960296372 Days.
