The Empire of Savsal is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Sav with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.861 billion Savsalians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savsalia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Savsalian economy, worth 436 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 234,666 Imperial Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 679,618 per year while the poor average 64,212, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

All writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, government workers are more efficient and more unhappy than ever, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Savsal's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Savianism.

Savsal is ranked 2,635th in the world and 2nd in United States of UBG for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 14,459.51 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
