The United Kingdom of Sasten is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Renadt II with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 19.543 billion Sastennites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azarai. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sastennic economy, worth a remarkable 7,500 trillion Ezrets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 383,798 Ezrets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, King Renadt II is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, many friends and relatives of King Renadt II have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sasten's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Sasten is ranked 7,971st in the world and 441st in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,819.67 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
