Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Sandovara is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Bavarius Lowther with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 2.403 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 95.2%.

The all-consuming Sandovaran economy, worth 229 trillion Sandorns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, 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. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 95,712 Sandorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, Sandovara has been greatly criticised for its isolationist policies, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and government popup ads are springing up like weeds. 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 27,067th in the world and 884th in Osiris for Most Conservative, scoring 71.23 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
