The Holy Empire of Sankami is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Sovereign Shintai with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.003 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 81.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sankamian economy, worth 934 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 186,855 tokins, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

All children's clothes come in only cream and off-white to prevent offense, politicians cheer the nation's surging death rate, grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, and 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail. 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 7,191st in the world and 362nd in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 6,470.86 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
