The Spacefaring Federation of Sacara is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Astronaut with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.162 billion Sacarians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westrock Station. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sacarian economy, worth a remarkable 4,226 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 298,451 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,416,056 per year while the poor average 37,120, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Cute fluffy little The Astronauts are increasingly popular exotic pets, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and citizens insist that there's no law against standing downwind when marijuana crops are burned off. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sacara's national animal is the courageous monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Sacara is ranked 254,161st in the world and 190th in Lands End for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -13.78 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
