The Holy Empire of Sankami is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by High Sovereign Shintai with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.796 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taiyo Shinkai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Sankamian economy, worth a remarkable 1,087 trillion tokins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 187,643 tokins, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, and the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 8,302nd in the world and 304th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 431,880.88 Standard Monetary Units.
