Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Plundering Privateers of Sankami is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Sovereign Shintai with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.35 billion Sankamians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taiyo Shinkai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Sankamian economy, worth 678 trillion tokins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 202,542 tokins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 614,052 per year while the poor average 51,951, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

The government is rumored to hire body doubles whose full-time jobs are to cry at public events, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, citizens must have a license to operate a computer, and racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sankami's national animal is the Tribune Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Deirtri.

Sankami is ranked 16,868th in the world and 603rd in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 10,427.07 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
