The Nomadic Peoples of Sail Nation Travellers is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its national health service, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.878 billion Sail Nation Travellers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Always Wherever Our Leader Is. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sail Nation Travel economy, worth 189 trillion United Currencies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 101,107 United Currencies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 330,357 per year while the poor average 23,264, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, there's no weight to modern politics, the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, and the only place where one can see the Sail Nation Travel cherry tree is in a museum. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sail Nation Travellers's national animal is the Migrating Geese, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sail Nation Travellers is ranked 108,571st in the world and 7th in The Embassy for Most Extreme, scoring 18.55 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
