The Bantrident Wielder of Sassoon is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.188 billion Sassoonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ginsburg City. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sassoonian economy, worth 420 trillion Sons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,310 Sons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bike rage is all the rage, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, internet trolls are considered valiant supporters of the right to free speech, and schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 Dolphinion.

Sassoon is ranked 3,261st in the world and 91st in the Pacific for Safest, scoring 134.35 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
