The Smelly City of Sardine World is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sardine Man with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, parental licensing program, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.866 billion Sardinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sardinia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Sardine Worldian economy, worth 997 trillion Sardine Bucks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 145,343 Sardine Bucks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 420,931 per year while the poor average 39,770, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, there's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy", and exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Sardine World's national animal is the Sardine, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sardinology.

Sardine World is ranked 254,405th in the world and 128th in Texas for Most Extreme, scoring 8.69 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
