The United Federation of Sarkis is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President ᦍᨦ᩿᩺ᦅᩝᩦ with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, digital currency, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.209 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, 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 Zhōngjīng. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Sarkish economy, worth 196 trillion United Federation Dollars 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 rampant. Average income is an impressive 162,205 United Federation Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 758,847 per year while the poor average 20,712, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

Whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, Sarkis is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million United Federation Dollar battlesuits. 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 Crane, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secularism.

Sarkis is ranked 55,773rd in the world and 1,867th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 1,583.98 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
