The Stratocratic States of Sarkis is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Маршал Николай Хрущев with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 788 million Sarkish are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Цитадель. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Sarkish economy, worth 110 trillion Кредитs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 139,615 Кредитs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 642,679 per year while the poor average 18,368, a ratio of 35.0 to 1.

The nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, and caps with skulls on them are the height of fashion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Sarkis's national animal is the Бурый медведь, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sarkis is ranked 102,675th in the world and 3,988th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 980.99 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
