The Holy Empire of Sankami is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Sovereign Shintai with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.036 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 79.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sankamian economy, worth 744 trillion tokins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 184,524 tokins, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, kids who move from attending a public school in the city to the country often struggle in goat milking class, janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, and citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks. 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 135,828th in the world and 7,586th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 444.36 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
