The Empire of Sanmyaku is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 7.006 billion Sanmyakuans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Sanmyakuan economy, worth 280 trillion denariis a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Uranium Mining industry. Average income is 40,078 denariis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, the arms industry is strictly regulated, Max Barry is this year's Miss Sanmyaku, and main battle tanks stalk the woods of Sanmyaku in search of astras. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanmyaku's national animal is the astra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sanmyaku is ranked 111,873rd in the world and 2,259th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
