The Federation of Sanin is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.792 billion Saninians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Padun. The average income tax rate is 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Saninian economy, worth 691 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 247,560 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Polite commuters on the Padun Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Sanin's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sanin is ranked 100,805th in the world and 5,007th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 46.71 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
