The Community of Saarinen is a huge, genial nation, notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 276 million Saarinens are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Gateway Arch. The average income tax rate is 51.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Saarinenesque economy, worth 12.9 trillion airport terminals a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,594 airport terminals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saarinen's national animal is the tulip chair, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saarinen is ranked 86,444th in the world and 14th in Seinfeld for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,523.8 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
