The Holy Empire of Sankami is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Sovereign Shintai with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, enslaved workforce, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.452 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 80.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sankamian economy, worth 829 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 186,393 tokins, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, illegal book-trafficking rings dominate the black market, and the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad. 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 64,668th in the world and 3,717th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,924.07 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
