The Serene Republic of Sansangra is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Wally Littlebird with an even hand, and notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.717 billion Sansangrans 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. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basaam. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sansangran economy, worth 432 trillion abrazoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 91,786 abrazoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sansangra's national animal is the parakeet, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sansangra is ranked 8,694th in the world and 252nd in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.48 Years.
