The Divine Federation of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Charlene Hendry with a fair hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 21.428 billion Sanctarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sanctarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,087 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,426 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, motels cater primarily to adulterers, and voting is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanctaria's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Sanctaria.

Sanctaria is ranked 199,002nd in the world and 86th in International Democratic Union for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.69 Crimes Per Hour.
