The Empire of Sanmyaku is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 13.057 billion Sanmyakuans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Sanmyakuan economy, worth 713 trillion denariis a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 54,657 denariis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 18,450th in the world and 530th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,648.34 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
