Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Sandovara is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Bavarius Lowther with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 1.656 billion Sandovarans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

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 Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andromera. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The thriving Sandovaran economy, worth 146 trillion Sandorns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 88,699 Sandorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, online tourism reviews of Sandovara are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, and discarded pennies litter the streets. 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 144,828th in the world and 7,246th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -16.31 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
