The Grand Duchy of Sarkis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by placeholder with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.147 billion 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of placeholder. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sarkish economy, worth a remarkable 1,622 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 315,263 Kroner, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,554,629 per year while the poor average 36,423, a ratio of 42.7 to 1.

Military spending is on the increase, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence. 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 placeholder, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sarkis is ranked 206,200th in the world and 10,003rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 16.09 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
