The Rhogogian Horror of Sensorland is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Rhogog with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.559 billion Sensorians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint-Paul's Twisted Imagination. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Sensorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,029 trillion human souls a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,189 human souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, Rhogog spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names, and baby monitors have been banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sensorland's national animal is the Great Old One, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cthulu-worship.

Sensorland is ranked 9,608th in the world and 224th in the West Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,137.83 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
