The Democratic Commonwealth of Sandwich Territories is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Brian I with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 9.805 billion Sandwichians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waterford. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sandwichian economy, worth 909 trillion Sandwichian Sterlings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,780 Sandwichian Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Sandwich Territories, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sandwich Territories's national animal is the Sandwichian Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is the Sandwichian Church.

Sandwich Territories is ranked 81,838th in the world and 5th in Kennan for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,653.61 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
