Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Sankami is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Sovereign Shintai with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.005 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 70.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sankamian economy, worth 604 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 201,133 tokins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 610,704 per year while the poor average 51,478, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, Sankamians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, prison libraries are being replaced with interrogation chambers, and atheists are heavily taxed. 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 13,154th in the world and 452nd in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 20,388.17 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
