The Incorporated States of Sarzonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Grant Haffner with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 34.039 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 6,680 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 196,272 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, students abandon classrooms for online education, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime is totally unknown. Sarzonia's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sarzonia is ranked 133,556th in the world and 153rd in Atlantian Oceania for Most Politically Free, scoring 56.76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
