The Principality of Sarmes is a small, cultured nation, notable for its smutty television, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 36 million Sarmes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 18.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Sarme economy, worth 2.27 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,942 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, Sarmes's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sarmes's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sarmes is ranked 50,362nd in the world and 13th in Lasagna for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.68 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
