The UwU Empire of Sarkis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by WIP with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, vat-grown people, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.673 billion Sarknese 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, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WIP. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Sarknese economy, worth 317 trillion WIPS a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 189,748 WIPS, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 887,704 per year while the poor average 24,229, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

The people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, the might of the entire Sarknese Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, and the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare. 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 WIP, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secularism.

Sarkis is ranked 71,648th in the world and 1,861st in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 1.67 billion Capita.
