The United Socialist States of Sanchee is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 560 million Sancheeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Sancheean economy, worth 3.56 trillion Yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 6,353 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public and lobster tastes best when it is red. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanchee's national animal is the Birdman, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sanchee is ranked 39,837th in the world and 1st in The Republican Antilles for Safest, scoring 104.36 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
