The Federal Republic of Sapoe is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 298 million Sapoeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matalao. The average income tax rate is 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sapoese economy, worth 25.6 trillion lire a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,865 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Sapoese politicians, no one born in Sapoe can fix a leaky faucet, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sapoe's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sapoe is ranked 118,138th in the world and 4,613th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 980.78 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
