The United Nations of The Sarian is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chief Executive with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.433 billion Sari 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,988 trillion Bondmunts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 137,741 Bondmunts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 423,997 per year while the poor average 34,568, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

Takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, the Bondstad Film Festival recently voted 'Sari Getting Hit By Football' as best film, and transgender and agender are on the education agenda. 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 162,593rd in the world and 1st in The Sariverse for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 21.93 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
