The Republic of Sative Pern is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Tomas Lovekost with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 2.952 billion Sative Pernians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shanghai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.8%.

The Sative Pernian economy, worth 123 trillion bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 41,966 bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, legislators toe the party line lest the Sergeant-at-Arms decide to conduct "truncheon practice" on the backbench, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?". Crime is moderate. Sative Pern's national animal is the bison, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Empty Gods.

Sative Pern is ranked 176,710th in the world and 266th in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 11.47 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
