The United Kingdom of Sasten is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Renadt II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 24.163 billion Sastennites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azarai. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sastennic economy, worth a remarkable 9,366 trillion Ezrets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 387,627 Ezrets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and the nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sasten's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Sasten is ranked 34,692nd in the world and 1,632nd in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,676.29 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
