Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Sprat


The United Kingdom of Sasten is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Renadt II with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 18.69 billion Sastennites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 7,168 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 383,539 Ezrets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, bars are packed at all hours, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. 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 80th in the world and 5th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 22,199.76 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
