The Republic of Sargossa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by General Gregorio Emparán with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.625 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 receive no funds. 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 7,662 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 222,782nd in the world and 88th in Rushmore for Most Politically Free, scoring 9.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
