The Constitutional Monarchy of Sandybeach is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Susy Flipflops with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.291 billion Sandis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunstar. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sandybeachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,974 trillion Starfish a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,115 Starfish, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime is totally unknown. Sandybeach's national animal is the Coconut Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Sand and Surf.

Sandybeach is ranked 406th in the world and 5th in NationStates for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 86.37 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
