Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Incorporated States of Sarzonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Grant Haffner with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The cheerful population of 26.701 billion Sarzonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woodstock. The average income tax rate is 1.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sarzonian economy, worth a remarkable 5,259 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 196,960 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, and political dissidents are cut off from essential services. Crime is totally unknown. Sarzonia's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is no religion.

Sarzonia is ranked 98,396th in the world and 66th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Authoritarian, with 0.11 Stalins.
