The Republic of Sapientiano is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Andrew C Hayes with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 920 million Sapions are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Administration, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Sapien. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sapientianoan economy, worth 112 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 122,509 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Sapientiano, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, some Sapientianoan athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sapientiano's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sapientiano is ranked 186,537th in the world and 6,229th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 34.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
