The Commonwealth of Sable Space is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 438 million Sables love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Martopolis. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Sable economy, worth 40.1 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 91,441 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sable Space's national animal is the sable, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sable Space is ranked 30,491st in the world and 910th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 75.09 on the Human Development Index.
