The Serene Federation of Sarolandia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Roy Harink with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.833 billion Sarolish are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thuisstad. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sarolish economy, worth 546 trillion Zilveren Grots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,533 Zilveren Grots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Sarolish, teenagers claim that morning paper rounds are performance art, and actors are arrested and interrogated if they play terrorists on TV. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sarolandia's national animal is the Roc Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Sarolandia is ranked 11,618th in the world and 19th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,983.22 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
