The Oppressed Peoples of Sarankh is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.251 billion Sarankhians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 36.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sarankhian economy, worth 40.9 trillion moporks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 32,672 moporks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sarankh's national animal is the mook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sarankh is ranked 41,260th in the world and 1,808th in Osiris for Largest Black Market, with 1.87 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
