The Kingdom of Saurland is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 371 million Saurlanders 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ëslˇ. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The Saurlandic economy, worth 15.6 trillion Skj°ldars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 42,002 Skj°ldars, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Ëslˇ's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen, it is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, and White Eagles are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way'. Crime is relatively low. Saurland's national animal is the White Eagle.

Saurland is ranked 167,744th in the world and 81st in Historia Novorum for Most Cultured, scoring 61 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
