The Arctic Fjords of Saransh is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Doctor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.593 billion Saranshians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saranshian economy, worth 485 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,686 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trespassers entering Doctor's office are immediately vaporized, Doctor has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime is totally unknown. Saransh's national animal is the Fairie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saransh is ranked 132,498th in the world and 3,498th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 36.89 on the Rand Index.
