The Federated Isles of The Sarian is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chief Executive Edward Tyrell with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.202 billion Sari are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 Lavington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Sari economy, worth a remarkable 1,354 trillion Imperias 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 132,770 Imperias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 398,310 per year while the poor average 34,568, a ratio of 11.5 to 1.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, the nation is known as the cheapskates of Esportiva, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Lavington to enjoy their national art. 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 6,476th in the world and 1st in Esportiva for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 6,481.46 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
