Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Sankami is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Sovereign Shintai with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.704 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 73.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Sankamian economy, worth 751 trillion tokins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 202,756 tokins, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, disputed territories across The North Pacific are being claimed by Sankamian college students, and builders across Sankami are blocked up with orders for new public loos. 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 9,167th in the world and 416th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 9,382.67 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
