The Incorporated States of Sarzonia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Grant Haffner with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 27.791 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 1.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sarzonian economy, worth a remarkable 5,632 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 amazing 202,680 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, President Grant Haffner's mistress is the belle at many state balls, and all guns must be registered. 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 6,080th in the world and 10th in Atlantian Oceania for Smartest Citizens, with 104.95 Quips Per Hour.
