The Republic of Sargossa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Gregorio Emparán with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.649 billion Sargossans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soluca. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Sargossan economy, worth a remarkable 7,669 trillion dinaras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 299,005 dinaras, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

Evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, the fate of the world literally rests on General Gregorio Emparán's fingers, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, and it's said that a Sargossan always pays his debts with significant compounding. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Sargossa's national animal is the Great Manta, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sargossa is ranked 8,042nd in the world and 7th in Rushmore for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 12,976.17 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
