The Dictatorship of Sandsepol is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 564 million Sandmen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sandsepol City. The average income tax rate is 60.4%.

The all-consuming Sandsepolian economy, worth 60.6 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,433 Sand Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, childish pranks are no laughing matter, the nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sandsepol's national animal is the Sand Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sandsepol is ranked 46,289th in the world and 1,222nd in The East Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,333.14 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
