LeaderKing Renadt II


The United Kingdom of Sasten is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Renadt II with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 25.456 billion Sastennites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. 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 9,896 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 388,776 Ezrets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

King Renadt II's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, Sastennic royals love to remind their siblings who was adopted first, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and community organizers have given up going door to door because nobody is home. 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 146,607th in the world and 6,211th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 907.97 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
