The Demonic Holiness of Sapphiron is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Yog-Sothoth with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.576 billion Nobles are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dystopia. The average income tax rate is 10.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Noble economy, worth a remarkable 1,519 trillion Obsidians a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,843 Obsidians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, and the government is avowedly secular. Crime is almost non-existent. Sapphiron's national animal is the Shoggoth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sacrifice.

Sapphiron is ranked 14,374th in the world and 50th in Wintreath for Most Developed, scoring 87.64 on the Human Development Index.
