The Croupier of The Sands Casino is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lady Fortune with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.533 billion gamblers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the poker table. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.

The frighteningly efficient gambling economy, worth 391 trillion chips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 110,951 chips, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 540,484 per year while the poor average 13,125, a ratio of 41.2 to 1.

Chess defeat has made Lady Fortune the laughingstock of dictators and grandmasters alike, the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and citizens are prohibited from raising their voice above thirty decibels in commercial districts. Crime is moderate. The Sands Casino's national animal is the gambler, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is getting rich quick.

The Sands Casino is ranked 48,673rd in the world and 8th in The Sands for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 73.8 Workforce Participation Rate.
