The People's Republic of Saronistan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Anthony Borons with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.473 billion Saronistanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serono. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Saronistanian economy, worth 544 trillion Lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,540 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saronistanians have recently stopped mysteriously setting off metal detectors, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, and foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saronistan's national animal is the camoscio, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Saronistan is ranked 211,547th in the world and 6,035th in the West Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -3.16 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
