The Socialist Workers' Republic of Saniston is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.9 billion Sanistons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Commune. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Sanistonan economy, worth 146 trillion labour vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 77,033 labour vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, prudishness is on the way out, and there's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saniston's national animal is the komodo dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Saniston is ranked 24,970th in the world and 377th in The Communist Bloc for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,278.35 Tourists Per Hour.
