The Experiment ZX09 of The Sacred Whale is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sun Wu Kong with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.895 billion Omnivores are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sancrosanct. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sacred Whalean economy, worth 290 trillion Litters of Bulls Bloods a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,350 Litters of Bulls Bloods, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Sun Wu Kong to meetings with foreign heads of state, Sacred Whalean watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sacred Whale's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Sacred Whale is ranked 161,660th in the world and 6,043rd in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.99 Obesity Rate.
