Sans Sense

Population357 million


The Democratic States of Sans Sense is a huge, genial nation, notable for its frequent executions and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 357 million Sans Senseans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Social Policy are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 27.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sans Sensean economy, worth 17.4 trillion souls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 48,601 souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'atretochoanadogs' dominate wildlife preserves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sans Sense's national animal is the atretochoana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sans Sense is ranked 49,378th in the world and 1,596th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 99.59 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
