The Incorporated States of Sarzonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Grant Haffner with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 30.888 billion Sarzonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The tiny 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 2.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sarzonian economy, worth a remarkable 6,239 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 201,994 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Re-education centers are being added to most prisons, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, a government program is underway to revitalize Sarzonia's beaches, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime is totally unknown. Sarzonia's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sarzonia is ranked 31,243rd in the world and 29th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.67 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
