The United Nations of The Sarian is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chief Executive with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.935 billion Saari have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bondstad. The average income tax rate is 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Saari economy, worth a remarkable 2,250 trillion Bondmunts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 141,198 Bondmunts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, the government refuses to transmit electricity to secessionist regions, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sarian's national animal is the Bustard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Sarian is ranked 7,796th in the world and 1st in The Sariverse for Healthiest Citizens, with 15.27 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
