The Great Republic of Sassage is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Winthrop Leonardson with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.801 billion Sassites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tartarus. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sassatic economy, worth a remarkable 1,535 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 156,660 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, the government loves seeing the little people fight, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime is totally unknown. Sassage's national animal is the Sea Otter, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sassage is ranked 32,335th in the world and 5th in Free Market Federation for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
