The Incorporated States of Sarzonia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Grant Haffner with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate population of 33.617 billion Sarzonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woodstock. The average income tax rate is 5.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sarzonian economy, worth a remarkable 6,554 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 194,968 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, and people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations. Crime is totally unknown. Sarzonia's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sarzonia is ranked 136,034th in the world and 114th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Authoritarian, with 573.4 milliStalins.
