The Dolphin Musical Paradise of Sassoon is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.492 billion Sassoonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ginsburg City. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sassoonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,055 trillion Sons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,328 Sons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, Sassoonians seem to be catching more chills, gossip magazines have pictures of Leader sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, and evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sassoon's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Fishmongolia.

Sassoon is ranked 40,802nd in the world and 1,211th in the Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,144.28 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
