The Sanesoulian Union of SaneSauceLand is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Domin the swords wrath with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.14 billion Sanians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SaneCity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Sanian economy, worth 419 trillion Organic Material and Scraps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 196,237 Organic Material and Scraps, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,795,828 per year while the poor average 2,312, a ratio of 776 to 1.

Sanian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", and teachers are dying as they attempt to read 500 word essays without pausing for breath. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. SaneSauceLand's national animal is the Tree, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Plagueistic.

SaneSauceLand is ranked 8,878th in the world and 155th in 10000 Islands for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 8 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
