The Sands Casino

Population2.099 billion


The Croupier of The Sands Casino is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.099 billion gamblers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Education, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The thriving gambling economy, worth 135 trillion chips a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Average income is 64,599 chips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 228,661 per year while the poor average 13,176, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Crime is a problem. The Sands Casino's national animal is the gambler, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Sands Casino is ranked 17,323rd in the world and 3rd in The Sands for Most Armed, with 8.26 Weapons Per Person.
